Master Gardeners September 23, 2018


Autumn garden plants & advice

The UC Cooperative Extension/LA County Master Gardeners will be at the Green Tent at their usual spot this coming Sunday, September 23rd.  

Baby Kale
This week they'll have some seasonal seed packets, information on what to do in garden in the autumn, and the following plants to give away:

  • Baby kale. It's an heirloom variety that will mature into little plants which are the  Master Gardeners think are best harvested young like lettuces.
  • A few spinach, lettuce and rainbow chard.
Sugar Snap Peas
  • Sugar snap peas -- delicious, eat them, pods and all.

  • Cilantro/Coriander plants. Lucky you!  We have a slow-bolting variety and grows well in good containers. Use the fresh leaves for their intense tangy flavor.  Allow some plants to mature and save the Coriander seed.  Can be grown inside in a bright sunny window.

  • Earn some good karma by bringing your old six-pack trays so we can continue to grow seedlings for your gardening pleasure.  THANKS!
