Re: master gardener class ideas?


Cyndi,
We were going to do this at our Dec meeting but decided we needed to be outside or at least where we could make a bigger mess. One girl offered to let us come to her house next July to make them. She is getting all the supplies and telling us how much to pay her. I think she doesn't know what she is getting herself into. One time I was in charge of teaching everyone to make the hypertuffa pots. What a mess... but we all want to do it again.

Tricia - native plants and organic fertilizers would probably be good
topics.  I think more people would do it right if they knew more about
it.
I educate people at work all the time.  They really just don't know.

Many people in our area seem to have problems with pruning...knowing
when
to prune and what.

Another idea might be about water issues...how to construct rain
gardens...how to save water but keep your plants going.  What to
plant in
dry areas?  When to plant to make sure roots get established.

Since the cooking shows continue to be popular, what about something
on
"eating your plants"...covering veggies and herbs in your area and
flowers
to add to spring and summer dishes.  You could follow up with dealing

with
things that eat your plants before you do.
