The Collin County Master Gardeners Association has expanded on their popular “Spring into Vegetable Gardening” classes, and in addition to basic vegetable gardening, will offer timely tips on successfully growing other edibles, such as herbs, berries and more, for backyard gardeners. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned gardener, there is something for everyone at this educational event.
It’s not too early to start planning for your spring edible garden! Learn how to grow delicious, and nutritious fruits and veggies in your own backyard! Collin County Master Gardeners, with decades of combined training and expertise, will discuss the specifics of planning, designing, and planting a garden, the best plant varieties, and the planting calendar for Collin County gardens. Attendees will learn about the importance of soil and soil preparation, how to grow vegetables in raised beds, containers, small spaces, and more.
Demonstration tables will feature hands-on displays and will be manned by Master Gardeners and local experts who have expertise in vegetable resources, raised bed construction, water conservation, drip irrigation, propagation, container gardening, pollinators, greenhouse gardening, tree care, insects/disease, and more. Representatives from Texas Pure Products will be on hand with examples of various soil amendments and mulches.
