January 21, 2015

masterlogoThe Walton County Master Gardeners continue the “How Does Your Garden Grow?” lecture series on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 from 10 – 11:30 a.m.  The subject this month will be saving time, money, and Mother Earth.  This program will be given by Len Ross, certified master gardener and licensed commercial fertilizer applicator, and Eddie Powell, UF/IFAS Walton County Extension horticulture agent.

They will cover using residential turf and ornamental fertilizers and herbicides.  Learn how to safely use these products to stimulate turf growth and to control broadleaf and grass type weeds without overdoing it. Do you know the best way to control pre and post emergent weeds in your flower beds?  Find out from experts – don’t guess.

These lectures are designed for local home gardeners. Light refreshments will be served and Master Gardeners will be on hand to take gardening questions. Soil testing supplies and instruction will be available for $8.

This program will be held at the Padgett Park Community Room again this month.  The location is 810 JD Miller Road; north off US-98 just west of the intersection with US-331 in Santa Rosa Beach.  The lecture is free and open to the public, however, seating is limited and reservations are required.  Call Cheryl at 850-892-8172 to reserve your place by Monday, February 2, 2015.
