Crystal Hartman If there is anyone in the EPP community who can run this? There's still time. I have to run the nursery that day. However, Evelyn has graciously agreed to display an EPP placard and fliers at her org's booth.15.04.2015 at 12:43 pm1Annette Gilley Also working that day, and can't get out of it.15.04.2015 at 12:54 pmview 3 more commentsCrystal Hartman Sorry you can't make it Annette. My kids and I will be there this Thursday 4-6 if you can come then. Or let me know a good day/time for you and we can just work together.15.04.2015 at 01:02 pm1Annette Gilley If ONLY there was some way to take off on Sunday the 19th, I would come out to EPP in the morning, then go to Earth Day (which is really growing into an awesome event) by 1 pm, but,.... :( Spring is my favorite season, but in many ways it is just hell.16.04.2015 at 03:18 am1Edulis Exsto Larian Solstice and Brian MonkeySoul Stanton can go Karen Epple.

Brian MonkeySoul Stanton Are you making it as a group event or personal? Michael Adler might have an idea.15.04.2015 at 03:27 pmCrystal Hartman I was pretty sure it was as EPP, as I chose the event from its page, not my personal page. Same as other times I've done events, so I thought???15.04.2015 at 03:39 pmview 1 more commentsCrystal Hartman I made sure the header was an EPP event not a Crystal event and same thing. THere is a button to click that says invite friends, that is auto-checked. With it checked it invites only the 52 members that are MY friends. With it unclicked it invites 0 people. I'm like, WTH??15.04.2015 at 03:44 pm
Brian MonkeySoul Stanton Wilmot Gardens at UF is hiring a part time coordinator. I work next door. This would be also a great UF - EPP bridge, as they are interested in us. They do a lot of the same things, including therapeuticSee More horticulture. In between Shands & the Ag areas on the corner of Mowry and Gale Lemerand, 1 block north of Archer. Less

Annette Gilley Thanks for posting, Brian. Fortunately, my secretarial skills are quite limited. I would race to apply if it was a part time gardening or greenhouse staff position, however. ;)15.04.2015 at 12:54 pm

Pindo Palm, Wine Palm, Jelly Palm (Butia capitata)

The Pindo Palm (Butia capitata a.k.a. Wine or Jelly Palm) is propagated from seed and generally reaches 12-15 feet in height.

Grown in full sun to partial shade, this perennial produces bright magenta flowers in the late spring and early summer.
It is quite cold-hardy and can handle temperatures in the teens with no sign of damage. It is also drought-resistant and resilient if relocated. Pindo palms thrive in a variety of soils, including alkaline, and is moderately salt-tolerant, though its roots and lower trunk can rot in soil which is kept too moist. Growth of this palm is slow; it may take many months to germinate. Though palm leaf skeletonizer, scale, and micronutrient deficiencies (appearing in soil with a high pH) present occasional challenges to the Pindo palm, these are not typically serious.

The plant’s date-sized fruit has a citrus-mango-coconut flavor, and makes great jams and jellies. The juice of the fruit can also be added to smoothies and tropical wines and liqueurs. Seeds can be roasted to make a coffee-flavored beverage.
