Garden Talk: Happy Soil, Happy Plants

October 21, 2017 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

We’re happy to partner with the Clarke County Library to present a Free Garden Talks Series – Sustainability in the Garden – at Barns of Rose Hill in 2017. All presenters are members of the Northern Shenandoah Master Gardener Association.

Happy Soil, Happy Plants
Speaker: Elaine Specht
Saturday, October 21 at 2:00 PM – Free Admission

Beautiful plants begin from the ground up. Whether you’re growing vegetables, flowers, trees, shrubs, or lawn, happy soil will help your plants thrive. In this session, you will learn about the basic components of your soil, how to test its needs, and simple actions you can take to improve the quality. Get a jump on next year’s garden by focusing on the soil this fall.
