Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County Master Gardener Program will hold its first Evening in the Garden at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 20 at the Frank Bratt W. Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.

Master Gardeners will show how to prepare a raised bed for planting. They will  show how to plant several varieties of seeds, discussing spacing and depth, as well as how to plant seedlings, including tomatoes, cabbage, peppers and beets.

There will be a discussion about pelletized seeds, various ways to plant potatoes and the pros and cons of organic vs. synthetic fertilizer.

If you would like to bring a small amount of soil from your own garden, Master Gardeners will do a pH test for you.

The program will be held rain or shine. In the case of rain, it will be in the large meeting room inside the Ag Center.

All are welcome to attend and the event is free of charge.
