Garden Planning 101 is a new event hosted by the University of Illinois Extension on October 4th from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Nokomis Public Library. Many factors must be taken into account when starting a new garden and U of I Extension is here to help.
Andrew Holsinger, Horticulture Educator for the University of Illinois Extension says planning a garden takes knowledge that local citizens may not know.
The type of plant, location, and landscape orientation will affect the success of your garden. Holsinger says there are many techniques to familiarize yourself with before taking on the garden planning task.
The Garden Planning 101 class will be in person only.
Registration can be found online at go.illinois.edu/cjmmevents.
Andrew Holsinger appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
