We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

The Massachusetts Master Gardeners Association is presenting latest tips for home gardeners who wish to explore topics that complement the information covered in the classic Home Horticulture class. Classes cover starting your own herb garden, working with pets around gardens, and forcing bulbs for the holidays.  In partnership with The Trustees, the Massachusetts Master Gardeners is providing lectures and demonstrations once a month through March 2018.  The classes take place the third Tuesday of the month. The evening classes are 6:30 pm to 8 pm.

January 23 - "Pets and Plants" - April Daley  Whether your pet is a cat, dog, chicken or "other" they have the potential to be exposed to your plants either indoors, outdoors, or both. There are many sources of information about plant toxicity but they can often conflict with each other. This presentation will help you to understand what "toxic" and "poisonous" mean to your pets as well as a method to evaluate the pet, the plant as well as horticultural practices and how much risk is involved in each situation.

February 20 - "Designing a Multi-Season Shade Garden" - Paul Steen  This talk covers a variety of shade situations and covers the unique problems/opportunities of shade gardening. We then cover the best shade plants and how to select them so that your garden is in bloom spring through fall. Even discuss how to have winter interest. Handout included covers a wide variety of shade plants and their cultural properties.

March 20 - "Easy Care Roses" - Eric Eisenhaurer  Grow beautiful healthy roses in your garden, without sprays and pesticides, by learning which roses are disease resistant, winter-hardy and the most reliable bloomers.

Registration and payment is through the Massachusetts Master Gardeners Association.  Fee:  $25 per class.
