Downtown blooms early this year
A total of 77 institutional and private donors chipped in to buy 74 baskets, Berryman said. Rogue Community College and Southern Oregon University jumped on the bandwagon, as did the Chamber of Medford/Jackson County.“As the project rolled out, it got bigger and bigger and more and more people wanted to purchase baskets,” she said.“It has been inspirational that so many property owners, business owners and individuals have supported the program.”The baskets were installed by Four Seasons Nursery and will be maintained through the end of September, Barney said. SPARC, formed in fall 2016, stands for safety, parking, amenities, redevelopment and connectivity.When the winter months roll around, the plan is to hoist lights to replace the flowers, Barney said. “This really shows pride in the community,” he said.— Reach reporter Greg Stiles at 541-776-4463 or email@example.com.

A sure sign that spring is here: Netherlands tulip farms are striped ...
Germany cultivates tulips for the bulbs. At Degenhardt-Sellmann Spezialkulturen in Schwaneberg, Germany, about 100 acres of tulips are grown.In Oregon, the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm hosts an annual tulip festival from late March through April. More than 10 varieties of tulips are grown there.Last year, a Dutch couple brought the Netherlands to Italy when they opened a pick-your-own tulip farm outside Milan. The farm, created by Edwin Koeman and his girlfriend Nitsuje Wolanios, covers about 2.5 acres, with 183 varieties of tulips, the Associated Press reported. The tulip season in Italy is only two to three weeks.Despite the obvious beauty, large-scale flower cultivation has a downside, especially in the Netherlands — fertilizer runoff that infiltrates the ground water and oceans. A recent European Union directive attempted to limit the amount of nitrates used in agriculture, and although the amount of fertilizer decreased in the surrounding waters, the Netherlands was unable to meet its goal.An aerial view showing farmers, seen as small dots, in a yellow patch in tulip fields.

Flowers ready to bloom at Oxford
Yale graduate. Bound for Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship. Working as a field representative in the Portland office of Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer. "I can't describe how overwhelmingly thankful I am for the opportunities I've been afforded," Flowers says with a smile and a shake of the head. It wasn't that long ago that Flowers was a star forward at Lincoln, dreaming of a career in the NBA. Now, Flowers' ambitions stretch beyond the reach of sports. A career in government? A run at public office? Flowers knows only that, once he is done with collegiate pursuits, he will return to his city of origin. "I owe it to Portland and the state of Oregon to come back and provide a lifetime of work here," Flowers says. "My entire mission centers on increasing access to opportunity and social-economic mobility, ensuring that the circumstances a person is born into don't define the list of potential outcomes from birth to the grave. "How will that manifest itself? I haven't the slightest clue." … Flowers grew up five blocks from Jefferson High, the only child of Jeana Woolley. He has four half-siblings from his father, Billy Flowers, who helped Grant High to the state basketball championship in 1968-69 and played one season at Washington State. JT's parents never lived together, never married. He was raised as an only child by his mother, a self-employed neighborhood development consultant who somehow always made ends meet. "She has been doing it for 30-plus years," he says. Flowers speaks in a poetic, lyrical fashion be...Dec 29, 2017
Winter-blooming plants help bees over winter in your yard
In the early spring, bees are going to need food to get their engines started again," said Andony Melathopoulos, a bee specialist with Oregon State University Extension Service. "You can't simply start up your gardening routines (for pollinators) again in the spring. Solitary wild bees, honeybees and hummingbirds are just clinging to life."The preparation you do now is very important since early spring is a vulnerable time for pollinators."More InformationPollinatorsFor more about nourishing pollinators in late winter/early spring, see the Xerces Society's list of bee-friendly plants at xerces.org.Pollinator plants like crocus, primrose and snowdrops will bloom even when snow is on the ground. Trees and shrubs also are effective choices for feeding early emerging honeybees."People often overlook trees," Melathopoulos said. "But when it comes to late winter and early spring, it's the trees that are important. Willows, maples, filberts and hazelnuts are some of the earliest sources of pollen you'll find. They're easy to establish and grow."He also suggests establishing the early blooming plants in clusters to make it easier for foraging honeybees to spot and access them."Bees are efficient pollinators," Melathopoulos said. "They really appreciate patches of flowers. They can go from flower to flower easily. It's hard for them to work on cool days, and if they don't have to fly between clusters, they really appreciate it."Many winter-flowering plants grow in the wild, but pollinators generally don't live near them, he said. That makes cultivating winter bloomers important when you're planning your gardens.Property owners also should leave suitable places for native bees to hibernate undisturbed. Let turf grass grow long over the winter. Avoid pesti... (Chron.com)
