University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Volunteers (MGV) program will host Mark Hutton, UMaine Extension vegetable specialist, to talk about “Growing Great Tomatoes.”
Participants will learn tips and tricks to improve success in growing one of the most beloved vegetables in the home garden. Hutton will demonstrate tomato trellising, staking and pruning methods. He’ll also discuss important topics such as selecting the right varieties, managing insect pests and minimizing disease pressure.
The UMaine Extension Penobscot County MGV Demonstration Garden — which features 30 theme gardens — is open to the public during daylight hours at Rogers Farm.
Open house sessions continue weekly Tuesday evenings throughout the growing season.
All programs are free and take place rain or shine. Registration is not required.
