Educating with Extension Newsletters

Each month, the Extension Service publishes a newsletter about its exciting programs and events both past and upcoming. See what we are doing and how you can become involved. 

For our December 2022 newsletter, we featured an article written by Michelle Leonard-Mularz, Environmental Horticulture Agent, Planting Tips for the Educated Gardener.Circling roots

Lack of growth and vigor; leaf drop and discoloration; heightened disease persistence and insect pest activity are all attributed to poor planting and establishment of woody plants."
