Greetings All:

Due to my new responsibilities, I will not be able to send out the Brown’s Plant File as frequently as I have done in the past. Instead, expect one or two Files a month.

 

This new fact sheet is on Buttonbush, a native Florida plant.

Here’s a new pictorial fact sheet on the Aerial Roots of Palms.

This new YouTube is on Saltbush. It’s now in full bloom. 4:59 total.

These older fact sheets are about what are now in bloom.

1.    Salt bush

I write a weekly garden column for the local paper, The News-Press.

There are usually 4 or 5 Q&A per column. Each Brown’s Plant File will now include at least one of those Q&A.

Foxtail Palm and Iron Deficiency

Until Next Time, Be Good and Stay Well!
