Veggie garden wrap-up tour - what worked, what didn't

At 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 9, UW-Extension will host a garden walk field day at the Demonstration and Learning Garden, at the Grow to Share community garden site at the end of Hanson Road next to Hoffman Park. Get ideas for next year from the various trellises, mulches, weed control and planting methods that were used.

There will be a discussion of what worked and what didn’t in the garden, as well as common problems faced by gardeners throughout our area.

Also bring your gardening questions and problems, as Horticulture Educator Diana Alfuth and a group of Master Gardeners will be on hand to discuss the garden and answer your gardening questions.

Feel free to bring samples of insects, diseases, or weeds that you have questions about.

Attendance at the garden walk is free but pre-registration is appreciated by calling the Pierce County UW-Extension office at 715-273-6781.
