[LIBERTY] – Autumn is the best time to plant bulbs that appear in the spring and Sullivan County Master Gardeners will demonstrate how to do so from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7 at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center on Ferndale Loomis Road in Liberty. Sullivan Renaissance is holding this free class in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Sullivan County (CCE).
After a bulb planting demonstration in the CCE teaching garden, Master Gardener Dayna Valenti will lead a round table presentation about bulbs. Topics will include the wide variety and types of bulbs, how deep they should be planted, how high they grow, how to dig up summer bulbs and how to store them.
Other topics will include: composting, mulch, cutting down annuals and perennials, and cleaning up the garden for winter. The Master Gardener Volunteers include: Janet Barbarite, Dennis Hewston, Mary Mancuso, Barbara Sush, Jody Tedaldi, AnnaLise Vogel and Robin Wagner.
Information will also be presented about how to become involved in community gardening projects through “Early Admission” to the 2016 Sullivan Renaissance Grant Program.
