University Of Illinois Extension Getting Ready For Growing Season

With Spring right around the corner, a lot of people are probably starting to turn their attention towards their garden to get ready for the planting/growing season that is right around the corner. Andrew Holsinger with the University of Illinois Extension Office talks about some of the programs that he has coming up to help you get into the growing spirit.



The pruning trees and shrubs class in Hillsboro (and online) will tell you why, when, and how to prune common landscape trees and shrubs. 



Another class will be teaching about asparagus and rhubarb and Holsinger explains the difference between perennial and annuals since rhubarb is a perennial. 



Finally, on March 31st, a tropical plants for the home patio class will be taught.
