Feb. 4 – “Sunflowers!”

Sunflowers are a bright and cheerful addition to any garden. They are easy to grow from seed in almost any type of soil and can be sown in succession for a season full of colorful blooms. Sunflowers can be grown for cut flowers, a colorful garden display or even for edible seed; for you or the birds. Whether you want short, medium, or tall; yellow, burgundy or orange, there’s a sunflower for you. Master Gardener Brandie W give this talk.

The talks are free, but registration is required. After registering, a Zoom link will be sent to your email. Register for “Sunflowers” here.

March 4 – “No Mow Yards”

Manicured lawns are a staple for most front yards, but they require a great deal of money and work to keep lush and provide little to no support of a diverse ecosystem. Master Gardener Connie B will explore alternatives to the front lawn that are biodiverse, nature friendly and low maintenance.
