Master Gardeners talk berry basics
Veteran WSU Clallam County Master Gardener Jeanette Stehr-Green will present an introduction to growing berries at noon Thursday, June 12, in the county commissioners meeting room of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.
Gardeners will gain a better understanding of the growth requirements for strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries and will be able to decide which berries they might grow successfully in their own gardens.
Stehr-Green will discuss the general types of strawberries, red raspberries, blackberries and blueberries, requirements for a supportive berry-growing site, the care
that each berry type needs and educational resources for growing berries.
Stehr-Green, an 11-year veteran Master Gardener and 2012 Clallam County Master Gardener of the Year, is a berry enthusiast. She enjoys growing, picking and eating berries. She has been growing berries on the North Olympic Peninsula for over 10 years.
She will provide in-depth information on Growing Strawberries on June 21, Growing Raspberries, July 12, and Growing Blueberries, Aug. 23 at Class Act At Woodcock Garden presentations at the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden, 2711 Woodcock Road.
