Home and Garden Information

Jun 27, 2019

Hello Gardeners, I’m Amanda McNulty with Clemson Extension and Making It Grow. Clemson’s Home & Garden Information Center, or Clemson HGIC for short, is the “go to” site for researched-based information applicable to South Carolina. The selection bar includes the topics Landcape, Fruits & Vegetables, Indoor Plants, Food and Entomology, with subdivisions under each. Right now a useful fact sheet is number 2212, Tomato Diseases and Disorders, with helpful pictures and text. If you sign up for the weekly newsletter, you get short blogs about interesting topics – a recent edition included notes on agave or century plant, the potential life-saving properties of breast milk  for very premature infants, and a timely reminder that watering your turfgrass every day is actually harmful to its health. A favorite regular feature is the photographs that Agent Barbara Smith takes at the South Carolina Botanical Garden. Just search Clemson HGIC and a box will pop up letting you subscribe.
