New extension publications available

Two new extension publications, one on hosta diseases and pests and one on firewise landscaping, are now available.

Colleen Warfield has co-authored Hosta Diseases and Pests with other specialists from Iowa State, Clemson, and the University of Georgia. The 16-page publication is filled with full-color photographs that will help the homeowner or grower identify and treat hosta problems.
It is available on the Web at http://www.extension.iastate.edu/Publications/sul14.pdf. Printed copies cost $1.50 each and may be ordered from Iowa State’s online ordering system. Go to http://www.extension.iastate.edu/store/ListItems.aspx?CategoryID=70. Iowa’s number for this publication is SUL 0014.

Firewise Landscaping in North Carolina is a new publication by Robert Bardon that is now available through Forestry Extension. This 12-page publication summarizes basic landscaping strategies that homeowners can use to reduce the risk of wildfire damage to their property. It also lists native plants by their flammability ratings. Contact Robert Bardon to order the printed version or check out the Web version at http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/forestry/pdf/ag/firewise_landscaping.pdf.
