Greetings Gardeners and Master Gardeners:


Up Coming Events:

Our next event, Saturday, June 18th, is the Taste of Lee. This you donít want to miss.



At the Taste of Lee we will have another Carmen Miranda Look-alike contest. See the video clip below.


July 12th. Plumeria and Desert Rose Seminar.



Fact Sheets:

This new fact sheet is on Buttonwood.


Use the link below to download more native plant fact sheets and video clips.


Another new fact sheet is on diseases and disorder of Indian Hawthorn.

By the way, we are looking for a spot to conduct an Indian Hawthorn trial. If you have easily accessible Indian Hawthorns with a history of fungal leaf spot, let us know. Better still, send some pictures of the plants and location. We may want to do a fungicide trial at your place.



Mulch Clip:

This in studio Plant Dr. clip is on selecting mulches.


Until next time.
