NDSU Extension Spring Fever Garden Forums

NDSU Extension Spring Fever Garden Forums, gardeners

Submitted by Craig Askim, Extension Agent/Agriculture and Natural Resources

Spring will come even though many think this winter has gone on forever! One thing that tells us spring will be arriving soon is the upcoming NDSU Extension Spring Fever Garden Forums. The forums will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. CDT on Monday nights, March 25, April 1, 8, and 15. You can watch the forums online on your home computer by going to www.ag.ndsu.edu/springfever/ and register. Once you are registered, a link will be sent to your email address to provide access to view the forums.

Individuals that do not have computer access or would like a more in-depth discussion can attend at the Mercer County Extension Office at 1400 Highway 49 N, to view the forums. I will have the computer set up and will be available to answer questions on the different topics presented each evening. Please call the Extension office at 701.873.5195 if you would like to attend since seating is limited, or go to the website and select Mercer County Extension Office and register.

The topics that will be covered are:

March 25 – Is There a Better way to Grow Tomatoes? Hydroponics at Home, and Top Vegetable Varieties for North Dakota

April 1 – Raspberries Cultivars for North Dakota, Pruning Shrubs for Fruit, and Beauty and Consumer Guide to Soil Test Kits

April 8 – Tree Maintenance, Ash Replacement Trees, and Hip and Happening Hydrangeas!

April 15 – Proper Mowing, Bring the Outdoors In: Fresh Cut Flowers, and Beyond the Honey Bees

You can attend all of the sessions or just watch the topics that interest you. If you would like more information on the forums or the speakers presenting, go to the website listed above. Handouts will be posted on the above website the Saturday before each presentation.
