* Can I replant in the same raised bed?
* Can I prevent the same thing from happening (since it's hard to get rid of them once they dig in)?
* Are plum trees any healthier?
My neighbor has plums and she doesn't do anything to them, but gets piles of plums. I get an apple tree, prune it, spray it, baby it, cover it's tiny apples in individual nylon socks, etc. and I get no apples (coddling moth larvae) and borers.
I sniffled a little. Poor Dale. He was my first fruit tree.

The aster looked completely dead, but the cold seems to have triggered a growth spurt.
I'll really miss them if they don't make it. They were left here by the former owner of the house, and bloom so pretty in the spring.
