Gardeners’ website describes invasive plants

Last week I visited California Invasion Species Action Week and mbmg.ucanr.edu. You can read about the invading species that came to California and what one can do to solve the problem. “People love anything new and unique, and that includes plants for their garden. In the past, when people brought plants from other places to California, people were unaware that this could be an environmental problem. The purpose of this article is to raise awareness about invasive species, their negative effects, and how they can help prevent them from spreading.

This section teaches you which species work best in the Monterey Bay area, how to choose the right plant and how to plant it properly, both in containers and in the ground. It also provides care for existing lemons and fertilizer and pest control. Visit mbmg.ucanr.edu for more information and to subscribe to this free section.


Prevendeli Farms begins the Oliveberry season

Visit prevedelli.com to pre-order olallieberries for an appointment at a local Santa Cruz farmer market or farm. The olallieberry season is very short, only three weeks, so do not miss it. According to Agriculture Newspaper, ÔÇťOlallieberry was produced by George F. Waldo in 1949 for the United States Department of Agriculture at Oregon State University. Although grown in Oregon, California’s temperate coastal regions have been identified as the most suitable growing region, mainly in the northern and central rural areas of California.
