    Cherry Blossom... are they all actually cherry trees?

    Favourite answer:

    The cherry trees involved in these displays are mostly a non-fruiting type. These are the ones planted along roadways, and in botanic gardens to create that early spring display of blossoms. But yes, when someone says "cherry" blossoms, they mean a cherry tree. These usually bloom long before other fruit trees, which is why they're considered such an important sign of spring.

    What is this structure called?

    I hope the photo is visible. (After a while Yahoo! seems to delete any photo attached to a question. I don't know why).

    However I was in Nebraska and saw this structure and though I have seen  these kinds of structures before I had not seen one exactly like this. It seems to be made of very tall poles which (in this instance) are wider at the bottom where they are staked into the ground  than they are at the top where they tower over ground level and then the poles are lined up to form some kind of square  and  there is some kind of  gigantic mesh net that is attached to the poles and goes completely around. I am not sure what it is used for and one thing that comes to my mind is how potentially dangerous such a structure is because high winds should be easily able to blow off the netting. Also once the poles are constructed or installed, it seems that the net has to be regularly changed since nets can break of wear down with time and how to workers put up such a net on such tall poles? This structure seemed to be as tall as a 15 story building at least.

    If you order bulk topsoil and the company delivers something else like mulch, do they take the misdelivered stuff back or what?

    I called their customer service, but they are closed due to holiday. I want to move the crap before it rains.

    What type of tree is this?

    I love in southern California if that helps. I just moved into a new home and started reviving this tree. It was nothing but twigs when I first moved in. Now it has green leaves and white flowers.

    Grape fruit tree leaves showing deficiency?

    Favourite answer:

    Throw a few handfuls of 24-0-0 fertilizer around and underneath it.  It is all nitrogen, cheaper than other fertilizer, available at agriculture feed stores.  Put the rest of the bag on your grass.  It that won't work, get some 13-13-13 or something similar and do the same thing.  If that is not it, be sure the water is proper.  Not too wet.  It is being drowned.  If that is not it, it is just the formation of new leaf and the leaf will turn darker green as it ages.  Look at other leaves and see if you have normal leaves, flowers, fruit, etc.

    What creature is it that annually cleans out my sidewalk crevices overnight and leaves the debris all over the walk?

    Favourite answer:

    Various birds will do that while searching for grubs, worms, insects etc.  At the moment here it's nesting season so there's a lot of rummaging for suitable nesting materials going on.

    Lawnmower dead?

    Favourite answer:

     Check the blade cavity for any obstruction.  Spray starting fluid on the carb and try to start.  Mower starts and dies, check the carb.  Mower does not start, check for spark.  If spark is good, check timing.  Good luck.
