NDSU Extension Sets Spring Fever Garden Forums

 Spring Fever Garden Forums 2017 Spring Fever Garden Forums 2017
For the fourth consecutive year, the NDSU Extension Service will host a series of forums to help families care for their gardens and landscapes.

The North Dakota State University Extension Service is offering a series of workshops for gardeners. A team of 12 university experts will present information on timely topics in gardening and landscaping.

The Spring Fever Garden Forums will be held on Monday nights beginning on March 20 and going to April 10. Sessions run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. CDT.

“This is a great opportunity for gardeners to learn about trends and see the latest research from NDSU,” says Tom Kalb, NDSU Extension horticulturist.

Experts will share information on selecting trees and shrubs, caring for lawns in the spring, building raised beds, attracting butterflies, growing berries and landscaping shaded areas. The speakers will give short presentations and then answer questions.

Presentations are made before a live audience in Fargo and delivered to more than 30 NDSU Extension Service sites across the state. Gardeners also have the option of viewing the live presentations on their home computer.

Sites will offer hands-on activities such as starting plants from seeds. Free samples of seeds and bulbs will be provided to registrants.

For a full list of presentations and to register, go to or contact your county NDSU Extension Service office.
