Invasive Species Week

This week is invasive species week. We should all take a little time to educate ourselves about invasive species. Wether or not you are a gardener they have an impact on all our lives. How many of us have had our veggies ruined by stink bugs or lost an ash tree to the emerald ash borer? The Bradford pear is a tree with huge economic repercussions. It is costing billions of taxpayer dollars to remove the invasive tree from public lands. For more information in invasive species go to: https://www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov/index.shtml


When the forsythia blooms I know spring is near. Some folks also use the forsythia blooms to know when to prune their roses or fertilize their lawn. The study of plant and animal life cycles and how they are influenced by the seasons is widely known as phenology. These warmer temperatures made me wonder if the phenology would be off kilter this year. Are you seeing any unusual phenological happenings in your area? For information on phenology you can visit the USA National Plant Phenology Network at https://www.usanpn.org
