Warm Season Vegetable Gardening
Zoom Online Workshop
Sat. April 24, 2021
10 – 11 am, plus Q & A
With Lisa Wagner
A vegetable garden can be a lovely addition to home landscapes by attention to design and plant selection, even incorporating edibles into landscape beds. In late spring and summer, warm season vegetables and herbs bring on a different character to the vegetable garden than the leafy greens of early spring cool season plantings, from the attractive fruits of eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes to the twining vines of beans.
Join Lisa Wagner to learn about soil and light requirements, choosing vegetable varieties, planting intensively, doing succession cropping, growing in containers, and enjoying and preserving the harvest. Free, but must register to attend. Read more...
|FROM WILMA: |
Last fall I planted several dormant perennials and mums. Thinking I would remember what they were, I did not label them. Guess what - they are now sprouting, and some are a mystery.
The foliage of spring-flowering bulbs like daffodils will go away soon - mark where they are to prevent slicing into them if you plant in the area. Use simple plant stakes, markers, embossed metal, picture tags, etc. to mark plant locations and provide information. Several types are available in the Garden Shop. Some of my favorites are cute markers for herb gardens.
March certainly went out like a lion. Mother Nature has put a temporary damper on some of our gardening activities. Next week promises nicer weather with sunshine and warmer conditions.
|Predictions could change for the better, but right now a low of 25 degrees is expected for Friday night, and a low of 32 degrees is expected on Saturday night. Protect your plants if possible since many plants have tender growth on them.|
We have floating Row Cover for sale in the Garden Shop while supplies last.
You can also use bed sheets or light blankets - depending on the plant you are protecting. Nursery pots can be used upside down if removed in the morning. Using sheets of plastic is not recommended as this can have a greenhouse affect and burn your plants.
