Greetings All:


Here’s a new fact sheet on the Strangler Fig.


This is a new YouTube on the Melaleuca tree.


And here’s something on Garden Edibles from the Plant Doctor.



Here are a couple of sites that you may want to browse.

We are looking for cottony cushion scales to do a study. East or west coast, if you have some, please let me know.

This is what they look like. If you are not sure, please send me a picture.



Until next time, stay well!
