St. Thomas Public Library has a dirty program in the works: “Spring into Gardening” with the Elgin County Master Gardeners! (It’s “dirty” because when you work in the garden, you usually get covered in dirt. Get it? You’re probably rolling your eyes, but I thought it was funny.)
Thursday, May 17, 2012
7:00 p.m. – Carnegie Room, lower level
The Elgin County Master Gardeners join us for another gardening season to share their bounty of knowledge for an evening just in time for the long weekend. A few of the topics the Master Gardeners will cover include:
- Tips, tricks, and instructions on getting your garden ready for the spring season
- Landscaping and hardscaping
- What to do before you go shopping for your garden
- Expert answers and advice on any gardening question!
For those of you who, like me, thought “What the heck is hardscaping?” – hardscaping is the part of landscaping and garden design that deals with bricks, stones, gravel, timber, glass, and paving. So brick patios, sidewalks, walkways, retaining walls, and the like that still enhance the lovely look of the garden.
We’re asking you – how does your garden grow? Whether you’re a beginner gardener or your thumb is so green the Hulk would be jealous, everyone can benefit from master advice! Jot down your gardening questions and mark Thursday, May 17 on your calendar for “Spring into Gardening” at St. Thomas Public Library. See you there!
