March to the Garden
Successful Small-Space Gardening, with Master Gardener Nancy Bell
Even a small yard can include native plants that fit neatly into your neighborhood style and provide ecological benefits. Learn practical examples of easy-to-care-for colorful perennials, compact shrubs, vines and small flowering trees that can transform your tiny bit of paradise into a beautiful and functional garden.
Pizza Pot, with Master Gardener Jane Adams
Do you ever wonder about the herbs that flavor your pizza? In this demonstration we will create and plant a large, round container with Italian herbs used for seasoning pizza (dough, cheese, and sauce!). This container planting will be suitable for the patio, deck, or centerpiece of a garden; and is fun for kids of all ages to make! Bonus: the container will be raffled at the end of the morning program!
Growing in Raised Beds, with the Master Gardeners
Dress warmly to tour the Master Gardeners’ Vegetable and Fruit Demonstration Garden @ the Extension office. The focus of this tour will be the construction, planting, and maintenance of raised bed gardens.
Growing Vertically: Finding More Space in your Garden, with Master Gardener Karen Luck
Almost everyone has limited space in which to grow, from patios and decks to raised beds and flower borders. This workshop will introduce you to various techniques, benefits, and rewards of vertical gardening so that you can realize the full potential of your gardening space.
This program is brought to you by University of Delaware Cooperative Extension, a service of the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources—a land-grant institution. This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
