The Pesticide-Free Garden, Wednesday, March 27, 2024 10:00 – 11:00 AM EDT FREE – Hybrid ZOOM/in-person

UD Paradee Center 69 Transportation Circle Dover, DE 19901

It’s a fact that insects and other creatures live in our gardens.  While many are beneficial, others are pests that can damage or destroy plants or annoy gardeners at work.  How do we protect our gardens without using pesticides that can be harmful not only to pollinators and other “good bugs” but also to the environment and human health?  Join us to explore other options to try before resorting to pesticide use.

Is it native or not?  Is it an annual or perennial?  As we gear up for our annual Master Gardener Scholarship Plant Sale, we offer you this opportunity to discover many of the plants we will have for sale.  Before you make a purchase, find out how large your selected plants can get, how, when, and where to plant them, and what their sun, water, and soil requirements are.

Have you ever considered including a hobby greenhouse in your garden? With the increasing interest in community and home gardens, the demand for a greenhouse has also risen. A hobby greenhouse is a perfect solution for gardeners who want to extend their growing seasons. In this session, we will discuss various gardening methods earlier and later, choosing the right location, climate control, and watering techniques.
