We don't have morning glory in our lawn, but it is taking over our strawberries. Is there anything we can do? If we decide we'd rather get rid of the morning glory instead of saving the strawberries, will roundup get rid of it?

You can use roundup on the morning glory. A broadleaf herbicide would also kill the morning glory but right now it is too hot to use it safely. Either of these products will work better if you wait until the weather cools off in late September. At that time you could also safely spray a broadleaf herbicide. When you do spray, you might try teasing loose some of the morning glory vines and laying them out on a thick piece of newspaper to protect the berry plants and brush on the herbicide. That way you might be able to save your strawberries. Make sure you do not remove the newpaper from underneath the morning glory until the herbicide on the vines is completely dry. No matter which chemical you choose, you will probably need to treat the area for more than one year.

- Hi, I have a lot of two year hybrid poplars that we've planted for a wind break and the leaves near the trunks are beginning to turn yellow. I've read that this can be because of lack of water or too much water or not enough fertilizer. It's July and we water them every day because of the 90+ temps. Any suggestions?
- I live in Sanpete county. The winters are very cold and I frequently have winter kill of my roses, and perennials, especially on the South side of the house. Could you give me a basic "Yard & Home Winterization" list of things to do to prevent this and other winter issues?
- We would like to remove the lawn from a large area around some 40-50 ft pine trees and cover the area with decorative bark. The roots are close enough to the surface in some areas that using a sod cutter would damage the trees. Would it work to just spray the grass with a killer, such as Roundup, and then put the bark directly on the dead grass? Would this affect the trees in the areas of the partially exposed roots? Any other suggestions?
