The Learning Garden presents:
The Summer Garden
Wednesday, July 10, 2019
9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
NC Cooperative Extension
Buncombe County Center
49 Mount Carmel Road
Presenters: The Learning Garden Team of Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteers
The Learning Garden consists of five individual gardens: Gateway, FourSeason, Rose, Sun-to-Shade, and Vegetable, each with its own set of challenges and rewards. We also have a Composting Demonstration site. Come join Master Gardeners for two hours of teaching and in-garden demonstrations as we explore seasonal activities, problems, solutions, and successes in The Summer Garden.
Maintaining a garden through the heat of summer requires an understanding of tasks such as managing soil moisture and nutrition. Learn how much water your own garden may require and explore ideas for lowering maintenance. Our Gateway garden is drought tolerant and receives little watering. By July, insects and other pests have arrived. Learn how to how to determine “good” from “bad” bugs, how to attract pollinators, and how Master Gardeners deal with pests. Bring your questions about moles and voles—they are active now, too.
The day begins at 9 a.m. with a brief orientation after which you can visit the different garden sites and talk with Master Gardeners in those gardens.
The program is free but registration is requested by calling 828-255-5522.
