Spanish Moss

Do you have Spanish Moss living in your trees?


Contrary to what many people believe, Spanish moss is not a parasite and does not injure a tree by obtaining any nourishment from it.


Spanish moss is an epiphyte, a plant that lives in a tree without any contact with the ground. It only uses the tree for support and does not invade the living tissue, like mistletoe and other parasitic plants. As in the case of lichens, Spanish moss obtains the water and minerals it needs from rain and makes its own food through photosynthesis.

Louisiana gardening by the month: July!

Here’s what to plant for July‼️

July: Vegetables to plant in July include cantaloupes, collards, cucumbers, luffa, okra, pumpkins, Southern peas, shallots, squashes and watermelons. In addition, you can plant seeds to grow transplants of broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, Chinese cabbage, peppers and tomatoes.
Finish pruning spring-flowering shrubs, such as azaleas and spirea, in early July. 
Sharpen your lawnmower blades. They generally will have become dull by this time of the year.

Keep up with weeding. Weeds can get out of hand very fast. Use mulches wherever possible.
Plant palms through August, since they establish best when planted into warm soil. Select hardier palms, such as cabbage palm, windmill palm, jelly palm, Mediterranean fan palm, Canary Island date palm, palmetto and needle palm. Keep them well-watered during their period of getting established.
