The Huntsville Public Library is pleased to host the Walker County Master Gardeners annual spring planting workshop, “Starting Your Spring Vegetable Garden,” on Monday, February 8, from 11:00 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. in the library’s Community Room.
The Master Gardeners will discuss different gardening styles, soil preparation, planting time, fertilizers, watering, drip irrigation, pest control, and more. Those who feel they lack sufficient space to plant will be delighted to learn that gardening is not necessarily confined to plants in the ground. With creativity, imagination, and expert guidance from the Master Gardeners, attendees will leave with the knowledge of how to turn almost anything into an overflowing container garden.
Texas Master Gardeners are members of the local community who have been accepted into the Master Gardener training program in Walker County, have attended 50 hours of instruction and have committed 50 hours of volunteer service to Walker County’s Texas Cooperative Extension program in order to attain certification. The group is committed to educating others in the community about a variety of horticulture-related topics. Their workshops and presentations are presented in an engaging manner that is conducive for learning.
