Master Gardener Powwow

January 27, 2011

Recently I had the opportunity to speak to a group of Virginia Master Gardeners. First of all, as a gardener, I really enjoy hanging around these volunteer experts.  We share the same goal of helping our fellow gardeners get the most out of this wonderful pastime.  And second, I always learn new gardening tips and tricks.

My first topic: “Raised Bed Vegetable Gardening” generated lots of good discussion about raised bed design, compost, mulch, seed spacing, successive and inter planting, keeping records, feeding, watering, vegetable varieties and solutions to common problems.

My second topic: “Secrets to a Great Looking Lawn” provided 10 tips in the areas of mowing, watering, feeding and solutions to common problems.

Thanks to all who attended. I hope to become a better gardener as a result of a great day of idea sharing!
