Spring Fever Garden Forums

North Dakota State University is offering a series of free workshops for gardeners. The Spring Fever Garden Forums will run on Monday evenings, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. CST, from March 22 to April 12.

Topics will include how to grow roses, select maples, use ornamental grasses, grow a no-till garden, lengthen the growing season, select vegetable varieties, identify good bugs, get kids involved in gardening, and much more.  

“This is a great opportunity for gardeners to expand their knowledge from the latest research from NDSU,” states Kelsey Deckert, NDSU Extension Horticulture Educator. “They can watch live presentations and ask any questions to presenters.”

Gardeners have the option of watching online at home or at a participating NDSU Extension County Office. The Burleigh County Office will host the event for Morton and Burleigh County residents. The office is located at 3715 E. Bismarck Expressway.

Registration is required for those participating at the office. Due to COVID-19, the class at the office is limited to 50 persons and facial masks are mandatory at this time.

For more information on the workshops, registration, and the free online connection to the forums, do an online search for NDSU Spring Fever Garden Forums or go directly to https://www.ag.ndsu.edu/springfever to register.

Time:  6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
