The July workshop held at the Niagara School of Horticulture was attended by 4 members of Mississauga Master Gardeners.
The courses were excellent. In “Tree Assessment” we learned how to tell the difference between tree specimens that are structurally sound and those that are not. “Integrated Pest Management” showed us how to recognize and control pests and diseases through phenology and organic methods. The third available course, “The Tiny Garden” focused on getting the most of small garden spaces through concentrating on plant selection and garden design, container gardens and vertical gardening.
We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the workshop in 2017!
