Learn Gardening “From the Ground Up”

July isn’t the nicest of times to be working in a Florida garden. Why not, spend the day with master gardeners learning about Northeast Florida gardening and getting ideas to improve your own landscape.  Attendees are sure to see a plant or design idea just waiting to be implemented in their own gardens.

UF/IFAS Extension Clay County Master Gardener Volunteers will host a day of education, “From the Ground Up”, for the pubic Friday July 12, 2019 from 8:30 am to 3pm at the Extension Office 2463 SR-16 West in Green Cove Springs (next to the Fairgrounds).

The event starts with a Master Gardener-guided tour of the Extension Office grounds, showcasing the specialty gardens:   herbs, wildflowers, succulents, edibles, daylily, butterfly, and shade gardens. Following the tour, learn from Master Gardeners and County Extension Agents about Gardening in Northeast Florida, Wildlife in the Yard, Lawns and Irrigation, Tool Care and Pruning, Plant Propagation, and Florida Soils and Soil Testing.

Bring a soil sample for pH testing and receive the results within 7 to 10 days.  Get your questions answered by the master gardeners during the course of the day.  Morning and afternoon refreshments are provided with lunch on your own.  Capacity is limited, register, select your workshops, and pay a $15.00 fee before July 5th at clayextension.eventbrite.com.
