To save time in the confirmation and diagnosis of this new and important disease, it is best to recommend that samples go to their lab directly rather than coming to the UConn Storrs lab. Alternatively, clients may contact the CAES Plant Disease Information Office (PDIO) directly by going to their website: www.ct.gov/caes/PDIO or by calling 203-974-8601 or 1-877-855-2237 (toll free outside New Haven area).
The new GCA website is LIVE! It is still a work-in-progress but you can now log in and register your own personal user name (your email address) and password of your choice.

The February sweeps were well subscribed and the results beautiful! Thank you to all that entered in the Horticulture and Flower Arranging classes. Go to the Activities tab across the top of this page, scroll down to Photo Gallery and click to see all the wonderful entries. We hope for even more participation at our April meeting. There will be Photography sweeps as well as Hort and Flower Arranging. We look forward to a big turnout!
Joan Sargent was back in fine form to celebrate the most snow we’ve ever had in Connecticut. Nonetheless, there were about 13 participants, wearing parkas, boots, gloves, hats slipping into Lauren’s house to enjoy a cozy fireside chat next to her potbellied stove.
