Laurie Foster and Sheilah Britton, Pinal County Master Gardeners
* Demo Day at SaddleBrooke Ranch Community Garden will be held Wednesday, March 8, from 1 to 3 p.m.
Join us at the SaddleBrooke Ranch Community Garden for demonstrations in working gardens, including amending soil, irrigation, planting spring vegetables, planting from seeds, when and how to fertilize—as well as special topics such as planting for pollinators, tips for maintaining healthy citrus, and how to properly shade your garden from the harsh summer sun.
* Demo Day/Plant Sale at SaddleBrooke will be held Monday, March 20, from 1 to 3 p.m. at MountainView in the Ballroom West and on the patio.
Join your SaddleBrooke/SaddleBrooke Ranch Master Gardeners in the spring for a Demonstration Day fair. There will be a variety of tables where you can stop and learn about gardening practices and techniques, caring for palms and cacti, and general information such as pruning, irrigation, plant pests, tools, container gardening, and much more. You can also bring your specific questions and problems (pictures help) and either get an immediate answer from the Master Gardeners at the Ask Your Master Gardener table or schedule a plant call where the Master Gardeners will come out to your house. While learning about pruning, you can have one garden utensil sharpened. There will also be a mini plant sale held at the same time.
