The eggcasings left behind by several of the femaleswere stored in the lab and watered regularly,with hopes of viability.“They are in containment because they areknown agricultural pests and can rapidlydemolish vegetation,” said Serfass. “Dueto their size, they are often used in insectanatomy classes for dissections, as eachstructure is easy to see.”Look for the grasshopper exhibit in theBugZone, beginning in late spring.Featured Plant: CalatheaThe Eastern lubber grasshopper can’t fly,despite having wings. They are known forbeing awkward movers and poor jumpers.“Starting in early January, we had hatching and hatching and hatching andhatching ” laughed Katherine Serfass, leadbutterfly associate. “We are now hosting approximately 70 young lubber grasshoppers.Each time they molt, the grasshoppers entera new stage or ‘instar.’ As of early February,we were taking care of first and second instarindividuals, which are characterized byblack bodies with yellow or red stripes. Thefinal molt reveals a beautiful yellow, tan andgreen body.”There are over 300 different varieties inthe Calathea family, many of which areman-made hybrids. “Native to tropicalSouth and Central America, parts of Africa,and the West Indies, the Calathea plant isgrown primarily for its colorful upright ovalleaves with contrasting undersides in shadesconsisting of purple, maroon or red,” saidBrooke Umberger, manager, conservatoryCalathea roseopictahabitats. “This is a great plant to growindoors because it is known for its vastdisplays of differing foliage designs, colorsand leaf shapes, as well as texture.”“To grow this plant in Pennsylvania, youwill need to keep the plant in bright, indirect sunlight. This means placing it near aneast-, west- or north-facing window, as toomuch direct sunlight will cause burning onthe leaves,” said Umberger.Be careful not to over-fertilize the plant,”Umberger said. “It prefers half of therecommended strength of fertilizer in latespring, summer and early fall.”Calatheas like a soil that can hold moisture but also allows for proper drainage.They also prefer distilled water. “Highhumidity is a must for the Calathea. Dryair can cause the edges of the leaves to dryand crack,” said Umberger.While Calathea can be a bit tricky togrow, it is one that is worth the time andcare. Its foliage is a beautiful show of color,and many varieties also send up unexpectedflowers. The flowers can last for two tothree weeks and some even dry well, whichare perfect for floral arrangements.Calathea lancifolia - Rattlesnake Plant3Calathea hybrid ‘FusionWhite’

Looking Back: Hershey’s First Rose GardenHigh Point Garden Celebrates 100 Years of HistoryMilton Hershey’s wife, Catherine “Kitty” Hershey,made her greatest contribution to the townin the gardens surrounding her home, HighPoint. Harry Haverstick, Milton Hershey’s head gardener,thought highly of Kitty Hershey’s taste. “She was interested in the planting of trees and everything that made theproperties look nice,” recalled one of the gardeners. Thegrounds surrounding their home were beautifully landscaped and were open for the public to enjoy.Sadly, Kitty died just before her 44th birthday in 1915after a long illness. A few years later, in 1918, a rose gardenwas planted at High Point in her memory. The garden wasplanted with heritage varieties or “old-fashioned” roses. Itwas edged with a boxwood hedge and peonies. Accordingto Harry Erdman, the manager of the Hershey Nurseryand Greenhouse, the garden was located about 400 feeteast of High Point. An arch with climbing AmericanBeauty roses marked the garden’s entrance.In 1930, Milton Hershey established the HersheyCountry Club and offered his home, High Point, as itsclubhouse. In 1951, when the Club decided to build anoutdoor swimming pool, the memorial rose garden wastransplanted in its original layout to the Hershey RoseGarden (now Hershey Gardens).Milton and Kitty Hershey with friends in High Pointgardens, ca. 1911.50 Years Ago: Famous Master NurserymanDonates Significant Plants to Hershey GardensDuring the 1950s and 1960s, HersheyGardens expanded with the addition ofmany donations of plant materials, including collections of gladiolas, peonies,heathers, azaleas, rhododendrons andJapanese maples.One particular and significant donationcame from Henry J. Hohman, a notedhorticulturist and propagator of dwarfand unusual conifers. His Kingsville(Maryland) Nursery was famous for collecting and propagating unusual conifers,broadleaf and deciduous plants. How thisimportant collection of 400 varieties ofevergreen plants, including almost 25 varieties of hemlock came to Hershey Gardensis best told by John Mezaros, then directorof the Gardens. Mezaros related the storyin his 1990 Hershey Community Archivesoral history interview:Mr. Bobb heard about this fellow, HenryHenry Hohman visited Hershey Gardens in1971. He donated more than 400 varieties ofconifers, Boxwoods, Hollies and other evergreen plants to Hershey Gardens, in 1967.Hohman. He had a collection of unusualplants. So he said, “Let’s go down and seeHenry and see what we can do.” Fine. Mr.Bobb was very interested in horticulture, bythe way.We went down to see Mr. Hohman and he4was glad. So we got in 400 varieties of evergreen plants, and among that, I would saythere were probably 25 varieties of hemlock.You won’t believe that. Twenty-five varietiesof hemlock and other numbers of varietiesof plants, boxwood and so forth, which isunheard of. We made a special section inthe gardens for this collection, named it forHenry Hohman, and we have a couple ofpictures of that somewhere along the line,where Henry came up and saw this aftera while and took him around and showedhim.He was pretty fussy, Mr. Hohman. I mean,you didn’t just walk into his place and say, “Iwant to go see your nursery.” You had to havean appointment. I mean, he’d scare the pantsoff of you to start with. (Laughter) Thenmaybe he’d relent. He would propagatefor Longwood Gardens and the NationalArboretum.

Pest Alert: Spotted LanternflyBy Lois Miklas, Penn State Master Gardener Coordinator, Lancaster Countyand Retired Educator, The M.S. Hershey FoundationAs pictured, it resemblesa beautiful butterfly, butthe spotted lanternfly is anything but desirable. This pestfirst appeared in Berks Countyin 2014 and has since spreadto 13 surrounding counties. Ithas not yet spread as far east asDauphin County, but is nowfound in the nearby countiesof Lancaster and Lebanon.Spotted Lanternfly, adult Photo: PA Department of Agriculture, Bugwood.orgThe spotted lanternfly is aleafhopper native to India,China and Vietnam. It has invaded Korea,peach and timber industries. In addition,where, virtually unchecked, it has affectedthe pest feeding in the tops of trees produces65 species of plants.

AdultThe honeydew provides an environmentfemales each lay about 100 eggs in fall andfor mold growth and also attracts ants andcover them with a waxy protective material.wasps. This, obviously, can be extremely detrimental to enjoyment of home landscapes.As an invasive pest, the spotted lanternflyhave no natural predators. It reproduces soprolifically that their sheer numbers makecontrol difficult.Spotted Lanternfly, eggs Photo: Lawrence Barringer, PA Department ofAgriculture, Bugwood.orgWhat is so bad about this particular pest?Spotted lanternfly larvae and adults feed ontrees, stone fruit crops, grapevines and hops.The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture is particularly concerned about theeffect it might have on Pennsylvania’s wine,Spotted Lanternfly, with wings closed Photo: Lawrence Barringer, PADepartment of Agriculture, Bugwood.orgHow can you help stop the spread? If you live in a county that is outsidethe quarantine area and see the spottedlanternfly in any form, including eggs,take a picture or save a sample in alcoholand report it to Badbug@pa.gov.however, their ability to hop can makethis difficult. Researchers are workingon pesticide recommendations. By law,pesticides can only be used as directed,and you will not find pesticides labeledfor use on spotted lanternfly yet.However, you will find pesticides for useon ornamental trees, and those may beused to control spotted lanternfly. Killing spotted lanternfly eggs is alsoimportant. Keep an eye out for thecamouflaged egg masses and scrape theminto alcohol (even hand sanitizer willwork) or double-bag and dispose of them. Eliminate the spotted lanternfly’s preferredhost plant—Tree of Heaven (Ailianthusaltissima). This tree is also invasive, andmay be growing on untended parts ofyour property. Use spotted lanternfly’s behaviors againstit. Instead of spraying pesticides thatcan also kill beneficial insects, you canuse a single Tree of Heaven as a trap plantand treat it with a systemic insecticide.Trees where spotted lanternfly like to feedcan be encircled with sticky tape (stickyside out). This is especially effective fortrapping larvae.Knowledge is one of the most importantmeasures to stop the spread of the spottedlanternfly. Home gardeners are in an excellent position to detect and help control thisinsect. For more information visit https://extension.psu.edu/spotted-lanternfly orwww.agriculture.pa.gov/spottedlanternfly. If you live within the quarantine area,be careful not to transport any lifeformof the insect to an area where it currentlydoes not live. Eggs are particularlyunnoticeable and can be laid on almostanything that is stationary for some time,including firewood, yard debris, campingequipment and cars.Spotted Lanternfly, immature Photo: Lawrence Barringer, PA Department of Agriculture, Bugwood.org If you see them, kill them!

The Hoop House is All A-Buzz!by Jody Davey, Hershey Gardens HorticulturistTake a stroll through the HoopHouse in The Children’s Gardenthis summer and you’ll dicover aspace filled with clever ideas for smallscale vegetable gardening. Dwarf eggplantgrowing in a hanging basket. Cantaloupeand watermelon vines winding verticallyaround a trellis with their fruits supportedinside knee-high stockings. A stand ofcorn growing in a half barrel.You may also notice a curious stack oflarge, wooden boxes with a glass andA-frame top tucked quietly away in acorner. Wait – is there something movingbehind the glass? A few steps closerand you suddenly realize that you’re in thepresence of more than 10,000 of HersheyGardens’ newest residents: European honeybees.The Hoop House hive, with its glass observation windows, allows guests to safely viewthe inner workings of the bee colony. Thebees are completely contained within thehive, having only a single opening to fly inand out. This opening is at the end of along tube that extends through the sidewall of the Hoop House to the outside,away from guests.As you watch the bees going about theirdaily lives, it is common to see femaleworkers, the most numerous in the hive,building honeycomb, storing nectaror pollen, or tending the young, calledbrood. You may also catch a glimpseof larger male bees, the drones, millingabout on the honeycomb. And if you’rereally lucky, you may even spot theelusive queen bee herself.Inside the HiveWhat are all these busy bees doing? Honey bee (Apis mellifera) colonies depend upon several different types of bees, eachperforming a specific task. As you peer through one of the observation windows, see if you can identify these types of bees.Worker BeeThe smallest and most numerous in the hive, thesefemale bees perform duties such as caring for thebrood (young), defending the hive, building comband foraging for nectar and pollen.Drone BeeThese male bees are the second largest in the hive.They have very large eyes and thick fuzzy bodies,and serve the sole purpose of breeding. They areless numerous than the worker bees.Queen BeeShe is the heart of the hive and the largest bee.Each hive has a single queen whose purpose isto lay eggs and populate the colony. She alsocoordinates hive activity through the secretion ofpheromones. While queens are extremely powerfulwithin their hives, they cannot establish new colonies without the help of drones and workers, whoprovide fertilization, food and wax toconstruct the hive.BroodThese sealed or open cells contain the young in various stagesof development.Honey/NectarCells containing cured honey are sealed with a rough waxcapping. Cells containing nectar are left uncapped until theydry out enough to form honey. Honey is the bees’ main foodsource.PollenThese cells remainuncapped and maycontain pollen ofmany differentcolors. Pollenprovides the beesa protein sourceimportant fornourishing brood.7

Rose Care Begins in Early SpringMuch work andexpertise goes intokeeping HersheyGardens’ thousands of roseslooking good year after year.Here’s the regimen that staffand volunteers use for hybridteas, floribundas, and grandifloras, which make up mostof the collection:Late March Remove dead wood andcrossing branches first. Thenremove excess canes sothat four to five of the healthiest, fingersized canes are left, ideally evenly spacedaround the plant. Cut remaining canes to8 to 12 inches tall, making slanted cutsjust above outward-facing buds. Apply the season’s first fertilizer – abalanced, granular, slow-release productfrom GreenView, such as one labeled at7-7-7 strength. Then apply a 2-inch layerof leaf compost over the beds.April When growth starts, begin a seasonlong spraying program to prevent bugs,mites, and diseases. Gardens’ staff rotatesamong four different insecticides, fourdifferent fungicides and two diffeentmiticides to limit resistance. They applythese treatments every two weeksthroughout the season. For home gardeners looking for an organic option, staff suggests weekly spraysof 1 tablespoon vinegar, 1 tablespooncanola or horticultural oil, 1 tablespooninsecticidal soap and 1½ tablespoons baking soda mixed into 1 gallon of water.Throughout summer Continue the biweekly bug/diseasesprays. Fertilize biweekly until early September with a water-soluble, 20-20-20fertilizer. Gardens’ staff applies this liquidover the plants along with the pesticidespray. As flowers fade, snip offthe spent flower heads andstem tips down to wherethe leaves are growingin five-leaf clusters (asopposed to the three-leafclusters located closer tothe tips). Continue this“deadheading” weekly toencourage new flower budsto form almost continuously. Water rose bushes bysprinkler when more thantwo to three weeks go bywithout a soaking rain.Late September Begin “de-petaling” spent bloomsinstead of snipping them off altogether.Keeping the bare buds helps plants finishthe season’s life cycle and prepare for winter. Do this through mid-October. Do notfertilize after early September, and don’tuse pesticides after the first frost.Early to mid-November Cut roses back to 32 inches. Staff uses a32-inch tall garbage can as an easy gaugeand catch bin for the cuttings. Then it’stime to rest until spring Become a Volunteer - Help Hershey Gardens Grow!Looking for a fun and rewarding experience?
