Spring Fever Garden Forums Set, Begin in March

Would you like expert tips to help you care for your yard and garden? Then Spring Fever Garden Forums are for you! North Dakota State University is offering a series of forums this spring.

Live presentations from NDSU will be delivered to Extension offices across the state. Educators will be there to share educational materials and expertise. Free samples of bulbs and seeds will be provided to participants at these sites. The sessions are free.


Gardeners may participate online in their homes if they would prefer.


There will be three brief presentations each night. The forums will run on Monday nights: March 26, April 2, April 9 and April 16. All forums run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. MT, and the Dickinson site is set for NDSU Extension/Stark-Billings County at 1340 West Villard St. Registration is requested. Please call 456-7665 or register online at www.ag.ndsu.edu/springfever/


Topics for the March 26 presentation are on vegetables:


Plant Parenting 101
Houseplants have never been more popular! Learn how to increase the number of plants you have through division, cuttings, and air layering


Alternative Lawn Care
Maintaining a ‘perfect’ weed-free and manicured lawn is costly. We’ll discuss alternative approaches that reduce pesticide use, decrease labor demands and lower costs of maintaining turfgrass.


Restoring Soil Health
Learn how the soil functions as a biological system and how to manage the soil in your garden to restore its health and fertility.


Topics in April cover vegetables, fruits and landscapes and special topics like tree pests, lawn irrigation, and bees. Three brief presentations will be given in these topic areas each night. Go to our website for titles of these topics:
