Master Gardeners, September 27

The UC/Cooperative Extension LA County Master Gardeners are back in their usual spot at The Green Tent on Sunday, September 27, from 9 am to 1 pm.

Lots of little plants have popped their heads up and will be available for you to adopt, including:

-  Heirloom salad leaf basil and purple basil  

-  Hierloom dill

- Heirloom cilantro 

-  French baby filet bush beans (these grow like bushes, and don't need a trellis)

-  Baby pak choi

-  Southern collard greens

-  Bloomsdale spinach

 -  Heirloom Russian Kale

-  Heirloom broccoli raab (rapini)

And, if we're lucky, container sunflowers

A remarkable resource is available online and is worthy of your time and examination, “The Drought Tolerant Garden”. It’s well organized, easy to read and exceptionally helpful for those who don’t want to just throw some gravel and a few succulents in the ground. You’ll be pleased; check the link.

And former MGLA director Yvonne Savio offers great information and opportunities to promote your own garden events on her new website and blog. Sign up for her newsletter. And check out her Monthly Gardening Tips for LA County.

Don’t forget: share your plastic six packs with the Master Gardeners. Drop them off at The Green Tent and next month they’ll hand them back to you with seedlings in them for your garden.
