comment What are these insects on my Arabian Jasmine plant & how can I eradicate them?
@J.Musser a wipedown will crush the eggs that will otherwise be unharmed by soap and water. It's only the pyrethrins and perhaps neem oil that have a residual activity that will control the next hatching without more attention. Some people don't have sprayers and have lots of time. That method is for them.

comment Can a willow tree be shaped?
When I planted Arctic willow on a heavily compacted berm you couldn't even see over it in three years. Hope a dwarf type stays dwarf. Top grafts tend to be bit dicey in colder climates.

comment Can a willow tree be shaped?
This is possible with a lot of work. Willows don't normally grow in that shape so you will be out trimming three or four times a year in the growing season. A weeping mulberry or any weeping leafy tree is easier to shape the way you want

Don't give up hope. Trees are remarkably resilient. Try more light, less water and patience

comment What is the minimum amount of space needed to grow a poppy?
poppies tend to have long tap roots and will be constrained by the depth of soil in a window box. Annual poppies would be more adaptable.

comment Potted poinciana leaves turning yellow
@FrustratedWithFormsDesigner sure, pop them out, whether there is one seedling or three or four they will spend the next few years growing roots due to the imbalance in pot size to root ball. They plants should be 'snug' in their pots with a little room to grow roots. You need smaller pots!

If skunks are hungry they will ignore this. You likely have chafer or Japanese beetle grubs in the lawn.
