    The Callery Pear tree will no longer be sold in Ohio effective 2023 as a decorative tree because no local insects feed on them which allows them to overtake areas.  I say good riddance, the blooms are pretty but they smell terrible!
  • Reflection Question
    Climate & Ecosystems Support Local Pollinators
    Why is it important to take care of pollinators? Do you have a favorite pollinator?

    My favorite pollinator would have to be the bumble bee, the teddy bears of the bee world!  I did not know they hibernate underground in the winter and feed as early as February.  I will add early blooming flowers to my beds this year such as Columbine to ensure they have a food source earlier in the year.
