News from the North Carolina Botanical Garden

From the beginning, the North Carolina Botanical Garden has offered learning opportunities to gardeners. In 2012 NCBG staff and other local experts will be instructing in a super line-up of offerings for our “Home Gardening Series.” Generally 2 hours long on a Saturday or Sunday, these workshops provide participants with new tools and ideas. Starting with Weeds 101 on February 11, “Queen Weeder” Sally Heiney shows you how to identify weeds and suggests strategies for managing them. On February 18 gardener Bob Peoples offers Get Ready for Spring: A Vegetable Gardening Workshop. These are followed by Native Plant Seed Propagation, The Dos and some Don’ts of Pruning, Identifying & Controlling Invasive Plants, and Native Plant Propagation (cuttings). Don’t miss these, and more (Photography … All About Grains … Medicinal Herbs). Visit our recently updated website for details and how to register:
