Invasion: Protectors of Prescott's watersheds wary of non-native plants - The Daily Courier
Watson Woods. On that list is the following:
Spotted knapweed, common teasel, scotch thistle, salt cedar/tamarisk, Siberian elm, Dalmatian toadflax, periwinkle, Russian knapweed and Russian olive.
John Mangimeli has been volunteering with Prescott Creeks to help manage such weeds in local wild habitats for about 10 years.
He spends hours every week manually pulling these plants out of the ground along local watersheds.
“It’s important to restore this environment back to its original state and maintain a healthy environment,” Mangimeli said. “Wherever exotic plants are covering it, the native plants can’t grow there and the animals that depend on those native plants can’t live there. They’re taking over our wildlands. We’re going to be a very impoverished environment if we let that happen.”
For additional information about non-native plants and how you can make a difference, contact Prescott Creeks by emailing info@PrescottCreeks.org or calling 928-445-5669.

Flower shop hands out free bouquets for a purpose - WHSV
HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — Visitors at the Walmart on Burgess Road in Harrisonburg on Monday morning were in for a surprise.
Harmony Harvest Farm handed out free bouquets of flowers to raise awareness of proposed federal legislation that would require federal agencies to only procure cut flowers and greens produced within the United States.
"As a flower farm within the U.S., we are trying to spread a little awareness for niche agriculture enterprise and this bill that helps support American flower farms," said Jessica Hall, one of the owners.
As of right now, the United States is the world's largest importer of cut flowers, accounting for about $1.73 billion worth of global imports in 2016. Domestically grown flowers make up a much smaller portion of the U.S. flower market.
Hall added July is American-Grown Flower Month.

Local flower shop remains family owned after 50 years - Progresstimes
We just stayed with the flower shop.”
City Flower Shop provides flowers to Junior’s Supermarket, Walmart, HEB, and funeral homes, Gloria said. Located at 100 S Conway Ave., carries all different types of cut flowers from carnations to roses and even offers bears, chocolates and floral arrangements for homes and funerals, which Gloria said make up 60 percent of their business.
The shop was among the first vendors in the Valley that sold flowers in a traveling thermal truck driven by Hilda’s husband, Pablo S. Guerra.
“It grew to three trucks that delivered and sold flowers from Laredo to South Padre Island, and then my mom got sick and passed away from a stroke in 2004 when she was 66,” Gloria said. “My sister, Dora, and I kept operating it with me taking over the wholesale side of the business and Dora taking over the flower shop. Then Dora passed away from cancer in 2010 when she was 51.”
With Pablo stepping down from fully working at the store due to his health, Gloria became the sole remaining family member running the shop and decided to close the wholesale side of City Flower Shop.
“Then people started coming here, looking for us hoping to buy flowers,” Gloria said. We received encouragement from the community to keep the wholesale side alive. That’s when I started pushing the kids to start coming here.”
As a family business, all the employees at City Flower shop are relatives of Gloria. These include Gloria’s son-Jonathon-who graduated from Mission High School in 2017 and took over the wholesale business.
Three of Gloria’s nieces also work at the shop, she said.
“With Jonathan at the wholesale section, sales have been increasing. I am very proud of the work he and his cousins are putting into the store,” Gloria said. “I have a 15-ye... May 31, 2019
Soggy planting season leaves growers dripping with concern - The Intelligencer
Brunt and his wife, Christie, helped several customers with purchases of plants and flowers for their gardens. But Brunt is concerned.The Farmers’ Almanac, dating to 1818, predicts more wet and muggy weather this summer, and Brunt believes in the almanac’s predictions.“They seem to understand the weather patterns better than Doppler,” he said referring to radar.Last year was the second wettest recorded in Philadelphia and both the Farmers’ Almanac and the National Weather Service expect more of the same this growing season. That has farmers, gardeners and veterinarians anxious, as all the dampness isn’t healthy for plants and animals alike. “Right now, it definitely has been a wet spring. The ground is holding a lot of moisture,” Brunt said. “The fields are wet.”Master gardener Pauline Myers, with the Penn State Extension Service in Montgomery County, agrees. “It’s absolutely saturated,” she said of the soil. And with all the wet weather, the bees aren’t as busy pollinating the fruit trees and other plants that depend on them. “Bees don’t work in the rain.”Animals have also been affected. At the Doylestown Veterinary Hospital, Dr. Laura Weis said she’s seen about a dozen cases of leptospirosis this year, most likely because of the ground not drying out. The rare disease is spread in the urine of dogs and wild animals. Because it’s been so wet, dogs that... Mar 29, 2019
