So many of us were effected by the weird spring weather.* It was so bad that those of us that feed hummers put out extra food and purple martins were suffering because there weren't enough bugs for them to feed on.* Anyway, wait to see what leafs out, prune off dead wood and go from there.* If you are growing your crape as a bush it should be fine.* If you want to grow it as a tree and you can't get the shape right, you may need to replace it.* :(*
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
