comment How do I recover an avocado plant that shriveled while I was away for a week?
@GrahamChiu You should ask a question about that as capillary action and self watering planters are another topic entirely

comment How do I recover an avocado plant that shriveled while I was away for a week?
@GrahamChiu If the plant had a capillary wick system and the plant was used to that then this would be a superior way to provide just the water a plant needs. However the soil mixture has dried out on this plant and it's water needs have been reduced without leaves to transpire. I favour a thorough wetting followed by a decreased quantity of water until new growth shows.

What is your goal when you prune. With most willows you just stand back, way back...and watch them grow.

comment All my plants have problems with the leaves and im unable to identify the exact cause of the issue
This looks like three different issues to me, fungus, leaf miner and ??? Voting to close as too broad. You can edit the question to ask about one plant and ask about the others in other questions.

comment Basic lawn profiling
@MikeWise Unless you can change the light levels by cutting down trees you have to work with what you have The topsoil, drainage and type of grass are all the things you can change.

comment Christmas tree of unknown species
I've worked with podocarpus. All species have a prominent midline on the leaf which is raised and, sometimes, a lighter color than the rest of the leaf. Leaves are opposite each other on the stem tend to be rounded at the end, flat and somewhat waxy. They are not hardy outside in Germany and tend to be expensive when sold in North America.This leaves on this plant are short, alternate, pointed.
