Buckeye Yard & Garden Online newsletter

The Columbus Community Garden site (linked on the right side of this site) had a good tip for area gardeners. A resource you should all know about is the Buckeye Yard and Garden on-Line newsletter, which is published weekly from April to October, and provides information about Ohio growing conditions, pest, disease, and cultural problems. BYGL is developed from a Tuesday morning conference call of Extension Educators, Specialists, and other contributors in Ohio. From my perspective, it gives information about soil temperature, etc.
BYGL offers:

• Weatherwatch

• Hort Shorts

• BugBytes

• Disease Digest

• Turf Tips

• Industry Insights

• Coming Attractions

• Byglosophy

Check it out online at: BYGL is available via email. To subscribe, contact Cheryl Fischnich at Additional Factsheet information on any of these articles may be found through the OSU fact sheet database

BYGL is a service of OSU Extension and is aided by major support from the ONLA (Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association) ; to the OSU Extension Nursery, Landscape and Turf Team (ENLTT).

BYGL is available online at:, a web site sponsored by the Ohio State University Department of Horticulture and Crop Sciences (HCS) as part of the "Horticulture in Virtual Perspective." The online version of BYGL has images associated with the articles and links to additional information.
