On Monday, I mentioned I was going to Brookgreen Gardens for a lecture on insects. So, let’s start off the year with a gate to a lush demonstration garden in the Low Country where I attended the lecture.
What were the top three things I learned from the Clemson Extension agent on insects? They have many of the same bugs we deal with in New England, bugs are becoming resistant to insecticides, and read the label carefully or you’ll kill the bees and butterflies as well.
It was a good learning opportunity, and if a picture is worth a thousand words, and this one does the job pretty darn well.
Have questions about insects and chemicals? Look up your local Cooperative Extension and contact them. In NH, we have Ask UNH Extension, and we can walk in, email, or call, and a volunteer staff of Master Gardeners will do the research for you and get back with an answer. It doesn’t get much easier than that.
Before I left, I also grabbed the first shot of the turtles. Have a great Thursday. 😎 🐢
