Soil importance, planting, succession planting, using your garden all year long, and making the most of your space will be discussed.

  • 10:00 AM | Fayetteville, GA
  • What happened to my tomato vine? Why did my squash go from “hero to zero” practically overnight? Join Sandy Golden, Master Gardener Extension Volunteer, as she expounds on the destruction that vegetable garden pests can accomplish in a short period of time. Please RSVP by calling our office at 770.305.5412 X 7. Free class.
  • Mar 9
  • 10:00 AM | Fayetteville, GA
  • Can I actually intermingle edibles in with my ornamentals? The answer is “yes”. Edibles and ornamentals can happily and beautifully co-exist in a well-designed garden. When designing with edibles, use the same design principles as you would with any ornamental planting. Plant in groups with soil compatibility, sun vs. shade, wet feet vs. dry feet, etc. Join Jennifer Stewart, Master Gardener Extension Volunteer as she gives examples and expounds on ways to create unity and coherence. Please RSVP by calling our office at 770.305.5412 X 7. Free class.
