comment How do you water your plants when your house as a water softner?
This question appears to be a cross-post of a question on Home Improvement, diy.stackexchange.com/questions/47603/…. Please don't post the same question to multiple Stack Exchange sites; instead, pick what you believe to be the best fit and if it turns out to be a better fit for another site the question can be migrated there.

comment Rotten Rain drain grate
I'm moving this to our sister site for Home Improvement since it's not about repairing a physical structure in your garden, and not about gardening itself.

comment What are the scratch marks on the undersides of my tomato fruits?
Please add some photographs of the damage. Also, what does "eight solution" mean? A Google search doesn't show anything related to gardening. Thanks!

comment What is causing the rotting/brown spots on my plum fruit?
@ondoteam Google Translate thinks that "phytosanitary" would be "fitosanitaria" in Spanish, which a human would probably translate as "plant health". (Note: I know very little Spanish). If that's right, then in this case, the right product would be called a fungicide.

If your first line is referring to the other answer, note that ondoteam is from the Canary Islands (see the profile). "phytosanitory seller" may be a bad translation from Spanish.

comment What is this tree with alternate leaves, and large green fruits?
Can you tell us the climate where you live (e.g. a USDA hardiness zone) or let us know where you are? That might help narrow down the possibilities.

Welcome to the site, Jeff. Please see the help center for the reason your signature was edited out. I also fixed some typos and added some paragraph breaks for readability. Again, welcome.

comment Why do the leaves of my avocado tree have brown edges and spots?
@mrsuthe Please explain why you think it's a mango, and what you would do to cure or prevent the brown edges on the leaves. As it stands, this doesn't answer the question.

This might be more appropriate on Biology, but I'll wait and see if the community here agrees with me. Related meta post: meta.gardening.stackexchange.com/questions/291/…

@J.Musser The original photo on imgur.com has much higher resolution; I edited the post to include a link to it. Please take a look and see if it helps.

Please use comments for requests for additional information in the question (see gardening.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/comment for more information). There's some good information here, but it's mixed with a flurry of requests for extra details (some of which were already asked for), making the whole thing hard to read.

Please add some photos of the whole tree and the affected leaves because they will help with diagnosis of the problem.

comment What is this plant that sprouted when I planted pepper seeds?
Where do you live and what kind of soil did you plant the seeds in? If you used soil from your garden, it's possible that it's something found naturally in your area. Even if you used sterile potting soil, a "local" seed could have landed and grown in the pot.

comment What is this plant growing in my backyard?
With identification questions, it's useful to describe where in the world you found the plant, and the conditions where you found it (sun, shade, rocky hillside, forested riverbank, and so on). If you have more information about the plant, please update your question to add it. Thanks.

comment How can I drain water from a low spot in my garden when I have no lower spot to drain to?
I was going to suggest this too. Here's a brochure from my city on how to build a rain garden.
