A 'festive holiday experience' | News, Sports, Jobs - Altoona Mirror
Santa, will be available from noon to 2 p.m. and again from 4 to 6 p.m. for photos and visits.
Vendors attending hail from across Pennsylvania and include crafters, direct sales companies and businesses.
Claysburg business owner Jill Knisely who owns Simply Celebrating Crafts & Gifts said she has participated in several Altoona Mirror marketing events and has found them to be well-organized and well-attended.
“I have been in business for 15 years,” Knisely said. “I base all my crafts on items that are unique and all homemade. From wreaths of all styles, flowers arrangements, to wood items, signs, homemade potpourri and a lot of little miscellaneous gems — everything is made locally. Seasonal wood signs, flower arrangements — candles — and gift items for all your shopping needs. I try to price point my items at $50 and under.”
Customers look for her at events like the Ho Ho Expo.
“I have customers that look for me at these events year after year,” she said. “I keep track of what I’ve sold before at an event and see what sold well. Then, I make sure to bring those items and more variety.”
For Knisely, such record-keeping helps her provide excellent customer service as her customers look for value when decorating on a budget.
“I know my customers like to add on to their decor collection each year. So I may use the same ribbon on different items that can be put together to add a new look. It’s a way to build a collection and have the items tie together and create a decorating theme, “ she said.
Knisely’s hand-crafted signs are made from oak, pine and re-purposed pallets either emblazoned with popular sayings such as “Kiss me goodnight,” and “Love you to the moon and back” or seasonally-themed. The homemade potpourri in cinnamon, pumpkin or cranberry make great gifts, Knisely said.
Altoona resident Jennifer Bidoli, a representative for Norwex products, said, “I participated last year and it was fabulous. It was very well advertised and we had a lot of foot traffic.”
She expects this year to be even better as the event has moved to The Grand Hotel.
“I’m excited. It will be very elegant and shoppers can explore the vendors in a relaxed atmosphere and get any Christmas presents they may need,” she... Nov 28, 2018
Rid your tropical hibiscus plant of aphid infestation - Tribune-Review
Pennsylvania gardens. Though their beauty can’t be beat, as you know, the plants themselves are not winter hardy in regions where freezing temperatures are the norm.
Because of their frost-sensitive nature, hibiscus must spend the winter indoors. There are two ways this can be done. First, the plant can be moved into a cold garage or root cellar that stays just above freezing. In these conditions, stop watering the plant. Your hibiscus will drop most or all of its leaves and shift into dormancy. No active growth will occur and water sparingly only once every 8 weeks. When spring arrives and the threat of frost passes, the hibiscus can gradually be moved back outdoors during the day. Increase the amount of time it spends outside over the course of two weeks until it’s outside full time.
The other way to overwinter tropical hibiscus is to grow it as a houseplant. While this is the best way to keep enjoying your plant and its flowers through the winter months, it’s also the method that comes with the greatest chance of pest issues. As you’ve discovered, when you move your tropical hibiscus inside where the temperatures are consistently warm, pest outbreaks frequently occur. Pests like aphids breed more rapidly in warm temperatures and if there are eggs on the plant preparing to overwinter, they hatch as soon as the plant is moved indoors.
To control aphids on your tropical hibiscus, I do not recommend spraying the plant with rubbing alcohol. Instead, I suggest using a commercial brand of insecticidal soap or horticultural oil.

Discover 6 great flowering shrubs for shade
It’s a great early forage plant for many species of bees. Fully hardy here in Western Pennsylvania, Japanese andromeda prefers slightly acidic soil and some protection from heavy winter winds. The drooping clusters of flowers occur on shrubs that reach about 8 feet tall at maturity, though some dwarf cultivars do exist. There are also some varieties with pink flowers and foliage, too. As an added bonus, Japanese andromeda is typically deer resistant.
Compact Korean Azalea (Azalea yedoenese var. poukhanense “Compacta”): This semi-evergreen, compact azalea seldom requires pruning and produces lavender-pink flowers in the spring. It’s perfect for woodland gardens and shady beds. At full maturity, this slow-growing azalea reaches just 3 feet tall and spreads about 5 feet wide. Its an easy-care flowering shrub for the shade. Unfortunately, the deer do favor it (along with other azaleas), but if you have space for this beauty, I highly recommend it.
Mountain laurel (Kalimia latifolia): If you’re looking for a great North American native flowering shrub to tuck into a shady spot, mountain laurel is a beautiful option. This evergreen shrub has shiny green leaves that are topped with clusters of cup-shaped flowers in the mid-spring. Though some sources tout it as being deer resistant, mountain laurel is a favorite of the deer in my garden, so plant it with caution. Mountain laurel is the state flower of Pennsylvania, and most varieties can reach up to 10 feet in height, though they are fairly slow growers. There are many cultivars of this shrub that come in a wide range of flower colors but all prefer to grow in shady conditions with slightly acidic soil.
Japanese Kerria (Kerria japonica): Another Asian flowering shrub that’s perfectly suited to shade gardens, kerria is a deciduous shrub that can really steal the show. In mid-spring, the shrub produces bright yellow blooms all along the length of its stems. Reaching about 8 feet in height with equal spread, it requires some room, but with its lovely, arching growth habit, it makes a wonderful specimen. Kerria even tolerates full shade and still produces blooms. The cultivar “Plentiflora” has double flowers that grace the garden with even more color.
