Preparing garden soil for planting

Cathe Muller will present the fundamentals of good soil preparation for a low maintenance garden on Thursday, Feb. 27, at noon in the county commissioners meeting room of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E Fourth St., Port Angeles.    

 

A 12-year veteran of the Master Gardener Program, Muller will emphasize how important soil is for vegetable and landscape gardening and that it must be “living” to provide nutrients for healthy plants.

She will cover soil testing, amendments, how deep to dig and how to “treat” poor soil in order to be able to plant immediately.

 

This presentation is part of the Green Thumbs Garden Tips brown bag series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners on the second and fourth Thursday of every month in Port Angeles.

The lecture series provides home gardeners with education on gardening topics relevant to planting and maintaining sustainable gardens and landscapes in Clallam County.

 

Attendees may bring a lunch.

 

The presentations are free and open to the public. However, donations to help offset copying costs for handouts are accepted.
