Aspiring Gardeners: Don't Miss This!

Joan McDonald

Hello, Front Yard to Table friends! Get ready: a great opportunity to learn more about hands-on gardening in the Lowcountry is coming soon. Clemson Extension is hosting its annual Carolina Yard Gardening School at the Ladson Fairgrounds March 16, and this is an event not to be missed! I look forward to this event every year. It’s like a huge gardening extravaganza of knowledge!


Here is a peek at some of the topics that will be available:


Grafting Vegetables

Totally Terrific Tomatoes

Small Space Herb Gardening

Growing Orchids

Native Plants

Secrets of Landscape Professionals

Garden CSI: True Stories of Crimes Against Horticulture

Permaculture Basics

Growing Shiitake Mushrooms


Also included in the day? A soil test, chances to win door prizes, and live plants for sale. Lunch is included, plus, you'll head home with complimentary compost. I'll be there presenting my favorite plants of 2013, with photos to demonstrate how one might use them in the home and landscape. I can’t wait for this event! I’m looking forward to seeing Front Yard to Table friends in person. Register here!
