Beginning gardeners are “thinking spring” with a new hobby
MADISON, Ala. (WHNT) – A room full of men and women gathered at the Dublin Park Conference Center on Tuesday to learn how to make their garden grow.
This was the first in a series of workshops the Master Gardeners of North Alabama, in cooperation with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, are offering for free to the public.
The hour-long “Lunch ’n’ Learn” educational workshop, called “Time to Start a Vegetable Garden, Seeds, and Buying Plants,” featured master gardener and author Bonnie Gardner. She gave a presentation to the room on how to begin a garden, then answered questions from the audience.
Some of her tips included beginning a garden on or after April 15th and starting with only one or two plants.
“It’s better to plant two or three tomato plants, and maybe a mound of cucumbers, than to do the whole thing,” Gardner said.
