Trying to garden in Oklahoma’s climate can be a challenge but Oklahoma County’s Master Gardeners are going to try to make it a bit easier with their “Growing Pains--Gardening in Oklahoma’s Tough Climate” Workshop Saturday, March 2.

    Residents can choose to attend either the morning (8:30 to 11:30 a.m.) or the afternoon session (1 to 4 p.m.).

     “Our Master Gardeners are reaching out to the public with many community service projects this year,” commented Ray Ridlen, who is the Horticulture Educator for the Oklahoma County OSU Cooperative Extension and advisor to the Master Gardeners.  “This workshop is just one of the ways they’re helping residents in the metro area learn to have successful gardens and landscapes despite all of the problems we can have with the weather.”

     “Succulents in Containers,” “Growing Tomatoes,” and “Tough and Unusual Plants for Sun and Shade” are the three main topics for the workshop.  Participants will also have a chance to talk to experienced gardeners about specific problems they may be having in their own gardening efforts, as well as shop in the “Gardening Boutique” sponsored by Master Gardeners.
