  • The magnolia family is diverse and April is the month that some of them begin to show their blooms in a most dramatic way. Among the native evergreen species are the southern magnolia (M. grandiflora) and the sweet bay magnolia (M. virginiana). The sweet bay magnolia has undoubtedly been over-used; I have seen them planted smack-dab against people’s homes on countless occasions. The southern magnolia, on the other hand, has a reputation for being marginally hardy here, so it may suffer from under planting. Selecting the right variety can solve the problem.

  • The Harrison County Extension Office will host a Lunch and Learn on Tuesday, April 12 at noon at the Extension office.
