Happy Flag Day from BEI

Flag Day is Monday, June 14. Let us Decorate your campus in Red, White & Blue with Cranberry Crush Hibiscus, White Hydrangeas or Baptisia Blues!

As gardeners, one way we can show our patriotism is by planting an American garden. Annual and perennial beds can triumph fully and proudly display the colors of red, white, and blue.

With a little planning and effort, you can achieve the same effect with the flowers of your choice.

Cicadas are gone, but they left tree scars!

As the cicadas retreat, you might start noticing the aftermath of their presence. One clear sign of cicada damage is “flagging,” where young branch tips die off, marked by the slits where female cicadas laid their eggs. While this damage can kill small branch tips, rest assured that your plants are likely to recover in the long run. For younger trees, you can prune out any affected or dead branch tips.
