The Iowa Master Gardener program is once again offering a series of summer garden webinars to be hosted by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Because weather patterns over the past couple of years have moved rapidly from drought to flood, the theme of the 2013 series is "Moisture Extremes in the Landscape." The second session in the three part series will be held on Tuesday, August 13. The session theme is: “Diagnosing Drought Damage, Flood Damage and Other Abiotic Stress Injury on Landscape Trees and Shrubs" and will be presented by Jeff Iles, horticulture department chair at Iowa State University
The summer webinar series, in its fourth year, is offered by the Iowa Master Gardener program in response to requests for more Iowa gardening educational opportunities. The sessions are open to all interested gardeners; participants are not required to have completed Master Gardener training to attend; they also need not have attended the previous session.
The session will be held from 6:30–8:30 p.m. Montgomery County Extension, 400 Bridge Street in Red Oak. Please contact the office if you intend to participate. Call 623-2592 or email Stephanie Langner, Program Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Montgomery County Extension is on Facebook!
