Outstanding Shrubs for the Midwest Home Garden CLASS
Monday • March 2, 2015 • 6:30-7:30pm
at North Liberty Community Library • 520 W Cherry Street • North Liberty, IA 52317
Discover the many uses of shrubs in the home landscape.  LCMG Mike Anderson will review several species of shrubs that do well in the Midwest, including some that may be unfamiliar to you as well as many recognizable and long-time favorites.

Fabulous Foliage  CLASS
Monday • March 9, 2015 • 6:30-7:30pm
at North Liberty Community Library • 520 W Cherry Street • North Liberty, IA 52317
Caladium, Coleus and Heuchera are just a few of the “must have” foliage plants in a flower garden.  Become inspired as Lori shares growing tips, care advice and creative ways to use these and other showy plants.  The foliage shape, texture and long lasting color will transform your flower garden giving it the WOW factor you long for! LCMG Lori Bailey presents.

Growing in a Hoop House  CLASS
Monday • March 16, 2015 • 6:30-7:30pm
at North Liberty Community Library • 520 W Cherry Street • North Liberty, IA 52317
Are you looking for a way to extend the growing season?  One option may be a hoop house.  A hoop house can be a relatively inexpensive way to get an early start on vegetables and to extend the growing season well into fall and winter.  In this discussion, LCMG Phil Pfister will provide ideas for materials used to construct a hoop house, plants that work well, and growing and insect management tips.

Container Gardens  CLASS
Monday • March 30, 2015 • 6:30-7:30pm
at North Liberty Community Library • 520 W Cherry Street • North Liberty, IA 52317
Container gardens do not have to be three geranium, asparagus fern and vinca vines. You don’t need to grow only one tomato in a container; you can grow a whole salsa garden in a container.  Come see what can be done with your containers. LCMG Deb Walser’s own containers will be featured along with planting instructions. You will never have a plain container garden again.
