Successful Gardener- August 5th , 2021 @ 7 PM

Join us for a FREE presentation:

Starting a Fall Vegetable Garden

Getting ready for a Fall Vegetable garden needs to start early and with our summer heat can require a bit of thoughtful planning. Learn the what, when and how about starting a Fall vegetable garden at our August Successful Gardener class. We will learn which plants we can start from seed and which are best purchased already sprouted, which varieties and types work best in our climate, which plants we should start early and which can wait for cooler weather. We will also discuss how we  can manage the summer heat and how and when should we replenish the soil. Our instructor is Don Boekelheide. Don is a local author, community gardening expert and a lively, informative speaker. Even if you've been planting a Fall vegetable garden for years, you are bound to learn something from this class. If you want to do a little homework before class, check out this link from NC Extension for vegetable planting information for Central North Carolina. It includes a table of planting times for lots of your favorite vegetables.
