Planting an Avocado Tree Outside

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

There are 3 different kinds of avocado trees and each can take different degrees of cold weather but since you are growing your tree from a seed I'm sure you do not know what kind of tree you have. That means you should stick with the least cold hardy type tree information just to be safe.

I believe you would be taking a chance on losing your tree if planted in the ground so I would recommend planting it in a pot that can be moved inside.

You can always contact a master gardener in your area and ask them for advice since they are familiar with your climate.

Here is a link to locate a master grander in your area.

In your area, its probably best to move it somewhere as warm as possible until the cold is over.

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Avocado trees are warm weather plants and don't do good with temperatures under 40 degrees. It is possible that you can plant this tree in your yard if you buy a freeze cloth for the cold.

Avocado trees need at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun each day to produce avocados.

I would suggest planting this tree in a pot outside and not in the ground.

Then, if you have cold weather you can move this tree back into your home.

You should also have a freeze cloth available for colder weather so your tree is not damaged if you keep it outside.

What Is This Garden Plant?

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

That must be one tough weed! I did not see your weed on that website either but there is some good advice about killing weeds in general.
Do you have an agriculture agency in England? That is where I always go when I find something like this. Maybe I will ask them about your weed as these things rarely stay in one country.
Maybe you could take one to a pest/landscaping company and ask them about it. They may want to kill it for you but they might tell you the name.
Another suggestion.. take either a photo or the weed to a good garden center and see if they can help you identify it.
I am sorry I could not help more but good luck and post back if you find out what this weed is called.

Thanks Cybergrannie, I will try some of your suggested methods. unfortunately my plant was not listed on the website you sent link to. I just want to know it's name so I can research in to it - it could be an edible weed?!

It did cover approx. 8 square metres but I have since paved and weed sheeted most of that area, however it has grown in all the remaining areas, shade or sunny positions. Other weeds nearby were Nettles, Dock Leaf, Wild Italian Rocket. Even after digging most of it and then covering it with thick cardboard and then 40cm shop bought compost, the plant pushed through!

Thanks for any advice.

How Long to Wait Before Dyeing Hair Again

September 20, 20171 found this helpful

Hair dye

Step 1
It is usually recommended to wait about 6 weeks.

Step 2
Did you have dark hair before ??

Step 3
Is the roots dark at the part.??

Step 4
Have you thought of just putting streaks in with a lighter color, that is very popular right now and if it does damage your hair then it will not have damaged the whole head.

Good luck and enjoy !!

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Most hair experts say it is better to wait 4 weeks before re dying your hair. This is the minimum interval you should wait if you care about your hair.

Some think it is best to wait 6 to 7 weeks, so you don't damage your hair.

You dyed your hair 3 weeks ago and if you'd like to dye it again it should be fine. However, if you can wait one more week it would be better for your hair.

Causes of Discoloration on the Outside of Mugs

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Probably most of us do exactly the same thing but I believe you will find cups are not made of the same materials and some may discolor faster than others.

Just a word of caution: bleach will remove the "coating" on most things and that in turn makes the cup (or whatever) absorb more of the liquid and that many times stains even faster and gets more and more difficult to remove.

Read More
September 20, 20170 found this helpful

It could be from high water temperatures and high drying temperatures. Try to lower the temperature when washing and drying.

This could easily be just a coffee stain on your mug.

Step 1
Use a sponge or soft scrubbing pad with baking soda to clean the outside of the mug.

Step 2
Mix your baking soda with a few drops of water to make your paste.

Step 3
Apply the baking soda and water mixture to the outside of the mug. Rub it gently to cover the surface.

Step 4
Let sit for 30 minutes and use a soft scrubbing pad to finish cleaning the mug.

Step 5
This should remove the yellow or discoloring stains from the outside of the mug.

Thirstystone Coasters Have Stopped Absorbing Condensate

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Thristystone coasters will virtually last forever but do occasionally need to be cleaned as the porous material will get clogged over time and use.

Dishwashing is not recommended as the extreme abrasion and heat of a dishwasher will cause the
natural cork backing to deteriorate.

What Breed Is My Dog?

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

"Pure bred" (and not so pure) Siberian Huskies are usually pretty expensive with even back yard sellers asking $150 or more. Even a mixed pup that has good characteristics will sell for that so the amount you paid may give some indication. Of course, if the pup was really pure bred you would most likely have gotten papers and paid a higher sum.

Since you have a young puppy you may not be aware of how important their first year shots and vaccinations are. Here is a link that explains what to have done his first year.

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

This is a beautiful dog and he does look like a Siberian Husky. However, looks can fool us. If you really want to know if he is full blood or not I would suggest doing one of the following.

Step 1
Make an appointment with your local vet for his set of shots. He needs them to protect him against the Parvovirus.

Step 2
While at the vet's ask if they do a DNA test.

Step 3
If they do the test find out the cost before allowing your vet to do the test. Some vet's charges for this test are quite expensive.

Step 4
If the test was too expensive at the vet's go online to Amazon and order your own home test kit.

Step 5
Do the test yourself at home. This will ease your mind and tell you if your dog is a full blood or a mixed blood.

Removing a Slight White Spot on a Nylon Skirt

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Lay the garment on a flat surface. Place a piece of paper towel under the stained area to prevent any bleeding. Work 1 tablespoon of liquid laundry detergent into the stain with a soft-bristled brush. Allow the soap to absorb into the stain for five minutes.

Read More
September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Unless you have spilled bleach on your skirt this could very likely be a soap residue spot on your skirt.

You will need white vinegar and an old toothbrush.

Step 1
Fill your sink with cold water and a 1/4 cup of white vinegar.

Step 2
Soak the garment in the water.

Step 3
Use your hands and the old toothbrush to work on the stain.

Step 4
This should loosen the soap and remove the stain.

Step 5
If this stain wasn't from washing and it isn't soap then we need to determine what the stain is from.

Step 6
There are several other possibilities why you have this stain on your clothes.

Step 7
White wine, milk or baby formula, bird accident, or correctional fluids.

Step 8
Each one of these stains has a different way to remove them. If the vinegar and water didn't remove your stain I would suggest trying one of these other methods. http://remove-s  e-stains-clothes

Dyed Hair Has Green Tint

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Anytime you dye your hair over bleached hair the results aren't guaranteed. The bleaching agent in the hair can react differently to each type of dye on the market.

Re dying your hair so soon can also damage your hair. Experts say it is best to wait 4 weeks before re dying your hair.

If your hair is green now I wouldn't recommend using a red dye on your hair to remove the green tint.

I would go to a hair professional and see what they suggest. They can determine if your hair is damaged, the best way to remove the green color, and the safest way to dye your hair the color you want.

Value of Old Encyclopedia

Considering the set of Encyclopedias is over 100 years old it has a value. Also, it appears that you have the complete set of encyclopedias.

Step 5
Biblio is another site that helps people determine the value of their older books. https://www.biblio.com/book-value

Treating a Molting Parakeet

September 20, 20170 found this helpful

Molting can be a normal happening but you must feel that your baby is beyond normal but what did the vet say?

Bald patches are not part of molting. A bird who is losing a lot of feathers, leaving behind bald spots needs to be checked for the cause. Illness, parasites, boredom, malnutrition and dry conditions can all lead to bald spots. He is probably pulling out his own feathers. He may just need more exercise, better food or more water for baths, but he could also be ill.

Step 1
When you water Echeveria, water the soil and not the rosette.

Step 2
Pour on the water until it drains out the bottom.

Step 3
Repeat this a couple times.

Step 4
Then don't water again until the soil has dried out.

Step 5
Once the threat of frost has past, gradually move them back outside in the spring.

Step 6
They like full sun.

Step 7
Do not keep them in the afternoon sun if it is very hot.

Step 8
Echeveria, indoors or outside, dont like to be kept too wet, but they also dont like to be kept too dry.

Step 9
Echeveria need soil that drains quickly. This helps prevent moisture from rotting the roots.

Step 10
Getting a fresh change of soil every couple years will keep them healthy and growing well.

Step 11
Use a slow-release fertilizer at the beginning of spring, or a liquid fertilizer diluted 2-4 times more than normal and used less often than recommended.

Step 1
Using a sharp, clean knife, cut out all blackened, dead or rotting plant tissue along with about 1/2-inch of surrounding healthy tissue.

Step 2

Step 3
Dipping the knife into a solution of 1 part chlorine bleach and 9 parts water between each cut helps prevent spreading the infection.

Step 4

Step 5
Angle the cuts so that water drains out of the carved-out pocket.

Step 6
Kill off the remaining bacteria by using the rest of the bleach solution to rinse the treated area.

Step 7
Allow the cactus to dry naturally.

Keep track of when you feed the dog. It is said that a dog can hold going to the toilet for 30 minutes of his age plus 1. So if the dog is 5 he should be able to hold going to the toilet for around 3 hours.

Step 3
You can also try to use pee pads in your home and teach the dog to go on them. If the dog won't go outside then it will need to use pee pads.

Step 4
If she is giving you a problem limit the access of your home where the dog is allowed. If you have a laundry room or another room the dog can be in this would help. Put a pee pad down in this room. The dog won't sleep in their own pee or poop. It will learn to use the pee pad.

Step 5
You will need to clean the smell of pee out of your home. I would go to the pet store and buy some special cleaner for this purpose. Make sure you clean all surfaces in the home so the dog can't smell his pee again.

You have a lot of "browns" so maybe some other colors would brighten up the room.

You must like your browns so maybe stick with this scheme and just add accent items to brighten the room.

Getting Rid of Fleas Inside

if your dog was treated for fleas then most likely he is scratching where fleas attacked him before.

Probably a good normal cleaning, especially his bedding, and vacuum will be all the house cleaning necessary.

What Breed Is My Dog?

September 19, 20170 found this helpful

Question: Is her mouth black inside? If yes she is most likely a black mouth cur--better known as an Old Yeller dog. Old Yeller was NOT a yellow Lab. There is much info on the web about these beautiful dogs. Most common in the south but after Katrina some have been relocated to other parts of the USA.
I owed one and she was an "open the car door and you get out" dog. I rescued her from being shot because the house she slept under did not want her either. Duchess was the gentle black mouth. Some are very protective as you saw in the movie but they are very loyal to those in their pack.
They can be very easily trained with a clicker and treat.
Their are LOTS of pictures on the web of these magnificent dogs. Many use them for hunting.

Looks like it might be a type of elephant ear due to the leaf size and shape. Best thought is to slip one leaf with complete stem and take it to a nursery or university if you live close to one to the agricultural department for an identification.

Best Answer

Sorry I have been so long in my update reply IT WORKED! Salt & vinegar solution finally removed the comet garbage from the tank. Betta DAISY is doing wonderfully. Told my friend to not even let anyone feed Daisy. One worker tried and she called her momma to come (lives 2 hours away) to fire the worker.
No-one is feeding my fish niece.
Next project. Have permission to buy her a 10-gallon tank.
Auuuugh! She just called and said she wins goldfish at the fair when she plays the arcade games 2 years ago it was SIX of them. Please pray she stops the 1.

Curtain Color Advice

September 19, 20171 found this helpful

Curtains

Step 1
You defiantly need to brighten the place up a bit.

Step 2
Unless you want just a plain one shade of color I would go with some thing bright. Green is a nice cool color, Pink if you want to be girlish, Blue would help brighten up the color in the rugs.

Step 3
But if you want to be daring then go with a swirl of colors, multi colors of green in different shades, or blues, or rose, or lavender.

Step 4
If you have a favorite color, then by all means go with it.

Step 5
Enjoy your new apartment.
