How Does Your Garden Grow?
The variable temperatures of April provide us an opportunity to finalize plans for our garden, order our seeds and begin to establish young seedlings. But nothing is more frustrating than to see our creative work thwarted by harmful rodents, bugs, and diseases.
“It’s a war” commented Linda Pinto, Master Gardener Intern. “After the long winter months, there is nothing more discouraging than to see your anticipated success threatened by bugs, insects or soil conditions. it’s just as important to know how to protect young seedlings and give them the best opportunity to thrive.”
This hour-long, hands-on workshop begins at 10:00 am Saturday, May 4th (rain date: May 5th at noon).
This will be an informal session where participants will have a chance to see the Community Garden during the seasons, and have an opportunity to talk about their own gardens. It will cover topics such as preparing your soil for maximum potential, identifying visitors, friends and foes alike, and helpful hints on what makes a garden successful. Master Gardeners will be available for any and all questions. The cost is $10 prepaid. You can register online at (https://extension.psy.edu.pike-county ; email at PikeExt@esu.edu or call 1-877-345-0691.
This outdoor event will take place at the Community Garden sponsored by the Milford Garden Club and the Master Gardeners of Pike County. It is located at the Milford Township Building located at 560 Route 6 and 209 just outside of Milford Borough. The Community Garden grows vegetables and flowers which are donated to the Milford Ecumenical Food Pantry. Please bring your own chair for the program.
