    I ran into a situation this year with my spirea. They developed aphids for the first time and as I was pruning them I noticed orange bugs with no spots. I’m wondering if those orange bugs without spots were lady bugs? I felt terrible that I removed branches with them on it. I placed the branches in an open compost pile as I didn’t know what to do with them. I hope they managed to fly to other plants to feed on.
    The directions on the spirea says to prune after blooming to encourage a 2nd rebloom, which I do for the pollinators. But am I risking lady bugs while doing this?

  • If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
