Think Spring!

 

Join us at the Onoway Public Library for a series of "Let's get Gardening" programs.

 

Tuesday March 19, 2019 - Starting Seeds Indoors

In our short summers setting out transplants is a must for many flowers and vegetables. Growing your own transplants can be economical, offers a wide range of plant choices, and is a fun way to extend the growing season. Learn about when to plant what, the right kind of pots and growing mix, as well as choosing a plant grow light. We will discuss common problems and how to solve them. Everyone takes home a sampling of planted pots.

Tuesday April 2, 2019 - Extending the Growing Season

In our cool climate warm season crops can be a challenge to grow. We'll talk about the art of squeezing a little more time into the vegetable growing season. A few extra days can make the difference for harvesting a great crop of corn. Share your ideas for getting an early start or pushing back the first frost: from setting out transplants to fall planting; from sunny slopes to hot caps, cold frames, and mini-greenhouses.

Tuesday April 16, 2019 - Plan Now for Storing your Harvest

Winter squash, carrots, garlic, apples, and more! A productive garden yields plenty to eat fresh and to store through the winter. Let's talk about it now so you know how much to plant. Or perhaps you like to buy in bulk at the local farmer's market. We'll look at what crops and specific cultivars store best, along with a few tips on harvesting, cleaning, and curing.

Presenter: Lorraine Taylor, Horticulturist, Lac Ste. Anne County

Time: 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm - free program
