Gardening Basics

Claire McCaughey

With the beginning of Spring only weeks away, many people are excited about buying new plants or planting seedlings they started from seed themselves. Claire McCaughey from the Master Gardeners of Ottawa-Carleton joins us to discuss how to master the basics of gardening and ensure success with your gardens and plants. This presentation is about the basic knowledge which is essential to gardening success whether you are a novice or an experienced gardener. The basics include among others the following topics: soil and soil conditions, watering, soil amendments and fertilization, pests and diseases, and plant selection and planting. Claire will help us understand gardening as a journey not a destination. Enjoying the journey is part of the pleasure of gardening.

This is an in-person presentation at 821 March Road, Old Town Hall, Kanata (entrance opposite Shoppers on Klondike Road)
