Greetings One and All:

Welcome new subscribers to Brown’s Plant File.


Here is a new fact sheet on Hedges. Hover over the blue words for pictures, fact sheets or video clip.

This fact sheet will be an excellent tool to help you to identify some common South Florida plants.

Let me know how fast the pictures download.


Here is a new YouTube clip on swamp lily, a native crinum.


This Plant Dr. clip is on a few summer pests and earthworms.


Here are a couple of not-so-old power points: (let me know if you don’t have power point capability)

Cisterns and Rain Barrels on Antigua.


Mailbox Companion Plants:


It’s not too far away, Saturday, November 5th, is our 11th Butterfly Conference.

More on that later.


Make sure your gardening friends know about Brown’s Plant File.

Until next time.
