Rutgers Master Gardener Talks: Kinnelon Library 3/21 & 4/19

Rutgers Master Gardener Talks: Kinnelon Library 3/21 & 4/19
Spring is in the air and you may officially mark your calendars for legitimate garden focused thoughts!

More specifically, March 21 and April 19 when Rutgers Master Gardeners visit the Kinnelon Library to cover a range of garden related topics.

  • Avoiding Garden Bloopers takes place Wednesday, March 21 at 7pm.

  • Spring Gardening is scheduled for Thursday, April 19 at 7pm.

The first in this series of talks about gardens is described as follows:

This presentation covers hardiness zones, soil pH and conditions, light exposure, plant characteristics, features and attractions.  Information on trees, shrubs, perennials, vines, ground covers, bulbs and annuals will be provided, along with many photos and suggestions.  

Whether you are hiring a professional or doing it yourself, planting an expensive tree or a tiny annual, it pays to be in-the-know.

From what I see online, Rutgers has a robust gardening program. In fact, it offers the Rutgers Master Gardener Program for those interested in becoming trained volunteers who assist Rutgers New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station (NJAES) Cooperative Extension in its mission to deliver horticulture programs and information to the general public.

Do call the Kinnelon Library to sign up: 973 838 1321.

For those who attend, consider sharing advice on how to avoid garden bloopers with us here. We'd love to learn from you.
