Thursday, Aug. 18, 5–6:30 PM: Deadheading and Extending the Season
With the wide variety of flowers blooming in August, we’ll walk through the garden and take a hands-on approach to demonstrate best practices of deadheading annuals and perennials throughout the growing season. Then, we’ll learn how to extend the gardening season by planting vegetable crops well into the late summer/early fall and various setups for protecting your crops against frost.
