The Manchester City Library invites you to join us virtually or in person on Wednesday, May 3 at 6pm in the library auditorium for a presentation by the UNH Extension Master Gardener Speakers Bureau on getting your garden ready for spring.
In this presentation, attendees will learn some best practices for getting their vegetable and flower gardens ready for spring, ensuring that both plants and planting areas are properly prepared for a bountiful harvest. In addition to covering the vegetable and perennial gardens, attendees will learn best practices on how to bring their lawn out of hibernation, how to care for trees and shrubs, dealing with aggressive weeds, the benefits of composting, managing pests and diseases, and tending to tools and supplies.
