The Science of Gardening: More Plants from Plants--Grafting
Saturday, Feb. 8, 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
If you know your soil, you will know your garden and yard and have a greener thumb. Make this your best growing season yet, from the soil up! Work with horticulturist and acclaimed Arboretum instructor Jim Calkins to learn the essentials of the earth in which you grow your plants. You'll be surprised by what you learn and how much you didn’t know. What are the components of soil? What lives in it? What do you need to do to enhance and manage your soil to grow better plants? What about watering, compost, and mulch? Although optional for this class, everyone should have their soil tested; consider having your soil tested prior to class for additional insight.Learning Center
