Gardeners all about strawberries

Master Gardener Jeanette Stehr-Green talks about selecting, planting and caring for strawberries in her presentation, “Growing Strawberries,” set for 10 a.m. Saturday, June 21, at the Woodcock Demonstration Garden at 2711 Woodcock Road, Sequim.

Stehr-Green will help local gardeners make sense of the general types of strawberries, identify varieties recommended for Western Washington (including those grown by commercial growers on the North Olympic Peninsula) and discuss how varieties can be selected so as to extend the fresh berry season. She will describe the ideal planting site (e.g., sun exposure and soil) and proper spacing and planting technique.

The Master Gardener Foundation of Clallam County provides horticultural education to individuals to help them manage their landscapes and gardens. For more information, call 565-2679.
