Upcoming Programs

 

Monday, March 6, 2017 - Glenn Grosch - Starting From Seed
This program is focused on specific steps for success in starting from seed. Discussion includes plant selection, containers, planting mixes, watering, fertilizing, heat and light requirements, and steps for disease control. A fun session, guaranteed to increase your "luck" at seed starting.

Monday, April 3, 2017- Jo Ann Loebel - Top Tens for Zone Five
Years of experience and trial and error are the framework for this popular slide presentation. These chosen favorites have all passed important tests that allow them to be included in this low maintenance, long-blooming, spring-to-fall color show. No problems with division, invasiveness, insects or disease. How good is that? Inclusion of dependable and low maintenance bulbs and annuals will give both large and small areas year-round color. Both beginners and experienced gardeners will benefit.

Monday, May 1, 2017 - James Rowan - Don't Squash that Bug!
There are over a million species of insects and spiders on the planet with about 25,000 species in Illinois. In this program we'll meet some of them, learn how to distinguish them and separate some of the "good guys" from the "bad guys". James will bring reference note cards that will be available for purchase.
