Waking Up Your Garden
April 17 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Spring cleaning in the garden is crucial to get shrubs and herbaceous borders looking their best, and to prepare vegetable and herb beds for a bountiful year. Daryl Beyers will review a checklist of earth-friendly gardening tasks to be performed during spring maintenance based on the key elements of soil, trees and shrubs, herbaceous perennials, vegetables and herbs, bulbs, annuals and containers, tender perennials, and lawns. Focusing on three pivotal moments in the spring garden: Before Final Frost, At Final Frost, and After Final Frost, these tips and strategies will give your garden a head start on a great growing season. Daryl will focus on a section of his new book The New Gardener’s Handbook which will be available for sale.
