Edible Garden Year: Soils and Spring Planting (150-05-10-18)
Thursday, May 10, 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Laura Vogel, Arboretum Adult Education Programs Manager, and Christy Marsden, Extension Master Gardener Education Manager
Before planting seeds and transplants in your garden, why not take a little time to consider the soil that needs to be nourishing these plants all season long? Begin with pre-class information on taking soil samples, if desired (tests available $17/sample at http://soiltest.cfans.umn.edu/testing-services/lawn-garden). During the class, Christy and Laura will discuss how to interpret soil test results, and different strategies for amending your garden beds to provide everything your edible plants need. You will then learn about how to harden off and properly plant transplants, as well as tips and tricks for direct-sowing seed. At the end of class, there will be a fun opportunity to exchange seedlings and seeds with classmates!
