Dill, Cooperative Extension Advice Cited in Press Herald Column

Monday, August 5th, 2013

The latest column in the Portland Press Herald’s Maine Gardener series included advice from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and James Dill, pest management specialist with UMaine Extension. Despite advice from scientists at the Maine Department of Agriculture and UMaine Extension to avoid impatiens this year, the plant has been thriving, according to the column. The article also referenced Dill’s warning earlier this season about the spotted wing drosophila, a new fruit fly that attacks ripening fruit.
