Brown's Plant File: Classes/CEUs; Clips; What's Blooming; New Whitefly/c

Just a reminder that we have two exam prep classes that includes CEUs.

Thursday, Ornamental and Turf


September 28, Limited Commercial Landscape Maintenance


Hendry County has numerous exam prep and CEU classes in October.

October 18, Natural Areas and Aquatic (two classes)

Here is a short clip that explains more about Extension and what we do here in Lee.


Here’s a new video on a not too uncommon problem of oak tree decline.


A new what’s blooming fact sheet on glory-bower.


We now have a new pest to deal with. It’s call the Spiraling whitefly. It’s a big one.

The pest is now infesting gumbo limbo on Pine Island, and fewer trees on Sanibel and in Fort Myers.

E-mail me if you see it.


Until next time!
