Garden Awareness

The up and down weather along the Gulf Coast means that gardeners need to consider more carefully some common pest management practices. When temps warm, bees are actively visiting flowers such as this Snow Drift camellia flower. If you have a pest problem on evergreen plants that you normally treat during the winter, choose a safe product that does not impact bees. Always be aware of our beneficial organisms and read labels carefully so we protect the environment.
