Q. How to adapt a weed burner/weed wand which has a screw-in fitting to a push-in fitting for gas cannisters?

I have a weed burner/weed wand which has a ‘screw-in’ fitting’ suitable for gas cannisters which have a threaded top fitting, however, I require an adapter to change the fitting so that I can use my weed burner with gas cannisters that have a ‘push-in’ fitting?, ie I want to be able to use ‘push in’ gas cannisters with my ‘screw in’ style weed burner/weed wand? I made extensive searches for adapters for this issue but cannot find the item that I require?

NOTE: Gas cannisters with a screw-in fitting are very hard to find and those that are available are extremely expensive; I have just purchased 28 cans of gas cannisters which have a ‘push-on/push-in’ fitting!

Many thanks

Regards – Patricia

If it's a "quick coupler" then you should be able to find an adapter. Did you check with the supplier of your cannisters? Or the manufacturer of the burner wand. That's a good place to start.

Q. I am digging up masses of orange/brown root systems from my garden beds. These roots are not related to any veggies grown in these

beds. To an extent these roots have always been there but this year in great proliferation, meshed and tangled together almost like clusters of birds nests, others twiggy, 2-3 ft long, 1/8-1/4 in diameter….what is this stuff?

I know of several plants that have orangish roots. Two are trees, buckthorn and mulberry. The final one is oriental bittersweet, a vine that produces clusters of orange-red berries in fall. Take a good look at your neighbor's yards. All three of these plants are vigorous growers and their roots will compete with your vegetables for nutrients and water. If none of these 3 appear to be the culprit, post again with a picture if you can.

Q. Thank you for the good work. I would like to know how I can access gardening tools and seeds from you. I have 52 rural farmers

engaged in Kitchen Vegetable gardening who lack tools like watering cans, spraying pumps, hoes and pangs then rackers. We prepare nursery beds for different plants to fight Climate Crisis.
It would be very interesting if you can send people to come train farmers in good modern farming.

This pretty little African violet might need a bit more warmth, and some fertilizer. Here's a helpful article: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/african-violet/african-violet-flowering-needs.htm

Q. Can I grow a new tree from the stump of a cut down tree?

I had a large tree in my garden that was cut down. The stump still sprouts shoots every year that I prune off. I have left one upright branch this year. If I keep pruning all the other shoots from nest year, will the branch Im favouring grow into a tree, with the large stump attached?

The short answer is yes, the leader you are favoring will likely grow up as a new tree. And with an existing root system already established, the growth may be enhanced.

But there are some considerations about doing this. The stump will begin to rot from wood decay fungus. In the long term, 10 to 20 years, that could create a structural weakness for the new tree trunk and potential for structural failure and risk of property damage and personal injury.

You don't indicate what kind of tree it is, but if it's a grafted tree with different root stock from the desirable top portion that was cut down, then the sucker that you are cultivating may be from below the graft and different from what you expect.

Q. What are these white spots on this root?

I have a plant that I re-potted. There was a root and I thought I’d put it in water to try to reroot. It has these white spots on it and I’m not sure if it worked.

Answered by

It appears to be a superficial fungus infection on the surface of the root, due to standing in water. I'd put it in sand or soil that can drain adequately while it roots. Use a rooting compound, which usually has a fungicide ingredient for this purpose.
