Mountain Horticultural Research Station

The “not so dormant” autumn season is a busy time for gardeners. Have you made your list of fall garden chores? Putting your garden to bed for the winter, and preparing it to thrive come spring, involves more than raking the leaves. This presentation will help you expand your list to include lawn repair, fall planting, optimum times to prune, fall insects, winter weeds, and more.
The talk is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522. You are invited to bring a brown bag lunch.
