Auburn center’s lab can help with lawns and plants

June 13, 2019

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.

Auburn_Entension“A lot of the people that move down here from the Midwest or more northern areas, they’re used to very, very different climate and environment,” Auburn University’s Marla Faver said. “They will want to grow plants down here that did well in the north. For some of them, it’s just not going to happen. Some of the ornamental plants do well in the springtime but when we get to the hot humid temperatures they’re done. They are used to them going throughout the growing season.”
