Join Lake Superior Master Gardeners and UW-Extension horticulture educator Jane Anklam for instruction and a demonstration on planting your spring garden.
The educational session begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Broadway Market Community Garden at the corner of Broadway Street and Hammond Avenue in Superior.
Topics include soil preparation, early spring weed identification, compost use and planting.
The Superior Council for the Arts maintains the Broadway Community Garden.
“Spring planting is one of the most exciting times in the gardening year. Following a few instructions will pay off when it comes to harvesting those fresh vegetables this summer,” Anklam said.
Radishes, carrots, turnips, peas and onions are planned for the demonstration garden. In addition, Master Gardeners will be available to answer your spring home gardening questions.
The Lake Superior Master Gardeners have begun the garden planting at the Solid Rock Gardens. Gardeners with questions about pests, plants, and fertilizers will find the Master Gardeners available to talk about gardening tips and frustrations 4-6 p.m. Tuesdays this summer at the corner of North Sixth Street and Weeks Avenue in Superior.
