Amaryllis: houseplant, then garden plant

Article Image Alt Text

Get It Growing

Few flowering bulbs can surpass the stately beauty of the amaryllis. Typically blooming in April, this popular bulb is a star performer in the spring garden. Dormant bulbs are readily available now, and with proper care, they can become a long-lasting part of your landscape.

Amaryllis plants belong to the genus Hippeastrum, and those we grow today are mostly hybrids of several species. We really are fortunate to be able to grow these natives of South America and South Africa in garden beds. In colder regions, amaryllis must be grown in containers because they would freeze during winter if planted in the ground.

LEDD hears sawmill update

Article Image Alt Text

The new plant manager of the LaSalle Lumber Company in Urania was the special speaker for the LEDD’s (LaSalle Economic Development District) monthly meeting, held at the Dixie Center in Olla Tuesday night, November 27.

Nick Landi, a native of North Carolina but hired over the summer as the plant manager for the estimated $115-million, state-of-the-art La-Salle Lumber Company, spoke to some 30 people present for the meeting last week providing updates about the plant’s progress and answering questions.

“We should be operational by the end of December with the first logs rolling into our facility by mid-December,” Landi said. “At least the sawmill will be operational and the dry kiln is experiencing a little delay but it should be operational by the end of January or early February.”
