“Spring Gardening Tips” is the topic of a “FREE” workshop to be held at the Webster County ISU Extension and Outreach Office on Monday, April 3 at 6:30 pm. ISU Extension Horticulturist Yvonne McCormick will present tips and techniques for growing vegetables and outdoor flowers and shrubs. Pruning and pinching plants, how to prepare the soil, cultivar selection and planting, along with other spring garden chores for Iowa gardeners will also be covered.
A workshop will be held to help extension staff, county horticulturists, local food coordinators, industry representatives, and growers learn to manage common challenges in high tunnels while also discussing new advances in high tunnel production. Topics to be covered include soil management, tomato grafting, insect management and environmental control. A visit to a working high tunnel is also part of the workshop.
Master Gardeners are individuals who have an interest in horticulture, have taken the Master Gardener training offered by Iowa State University Extension, and share their time and expertise with other gardeners.
