Auburn center’s lab can help with lawns and plants

June 13, 2019 – Orange Beach, AL – (OBA®) – People new to the southern tip of Alabama and looking to garden and grow plants as they did back home quickly learn this is an entirely different environment.

They are used to them going throughout the growing season.”
