    This year has been a good year for sweet alyssum. It loved the cool, moist spring...and seems to be unfazed by the warmer, drier summer. Check out Sweet Alyssum and many other gorgeous plants at the Discovery Garden at the Iowa State Fair. #lobularia #wonderlandwhite #iowastatefair #horticulture #sweetalysssum #sweetsmells @isuanrext #mastergardeners #discoverygarden2019

    Watering needed today! It has been hot and dry in many parts of the state. Be sure your container plants and newly planted trees, shrubs, flowers, and vegetables are well watered! Try to water in the morning and dont wet the foliage to prevent disease issues. #horticulture #watering #drysoils #iowa #coleus #irrigation
