The Oklahoma County Master Gardeners will hold their “Third Thursday” gardening workshop Thursday, February 21, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the OSU Cooperative Extension Service office.
February’s Third Thursday gardening workshop will focus on “Propagation” and will include information that can help gardeners learn to establish new, healthy plants from cuttings, seeds and other propagation methods.
As part of their continuing outreach program, Master Gardeners will host a Third Thursday seminar every month throughout the coming year. March’s topic will be “Vegetable Gardening,” while “Perennials and Annuals” will be the focus for the April 18 Third Thursday Workshop.
All horticulture seminars and workshops taught by the Oklahoma County Master Gardeners are offered free to the public.
On March 2, the Master Gardeners will also hold a Saturday workshop that will help gardeners learn to cope with some of the problems that can arise when trying to garden with Oklahoma’s often extreme weather. The “Growing Pains – Gardening in Oklahoma’s Tough Climate” Workshop will be offered from 8:30 to 11:30 Saturday morning or from 1 to 4 p.m. Topics for this workshop will include “Growing Tomatoes,” “Succulents in Containers,” and “Tough and Unusual Plants for Shade or Sun.” Though there is no charge for this workshop, residents who would like to attend need to call the Extension Service at 713-1125 to reserve a seat.
