Whether you had a vegetable or flower garden or grew tomatoes in containers, an end-of-season evaluation can be extremely helpful when planning for next year. A great start is to simply ask yourself: “What worked, what didn’t work, and what will I do differently?” Asking more detailed questions can help you recall this year’s growing season:
- What insects and diseases were most prominent? How well did I manage them?
- What type of problems came from too much rain?
- Was the garden overwhelmed by weeds?
- What would help me grow a better, more beautiful and abundant garden next year?
Join Alison and a panel of Master Gardener experts as they discuss the highs and lows of the 2018 growing season. They’ll answer your questions and help you make plans for your 2019 garden.
The talk is free, but seating is limited and registration is required by calling 828-255-5522.
