Many vegetables are well-adapted to planting in late summer for a fall harvest. Containers enable those lacking sufficient space or appropriate site conditions to grow fresh, nutritious vegetables. Containers also allow ready access for more frequent harvests and easier pest management. Join Matt Jones and the Master Gardener Volunteers of Chatham County for a free fall container vegetable gardening class on Saturday, August 11th.
Learn the principles of container gardening in any season, including choosing appropriate containers, growing media, light and water requirements, and nutrient management. We’ll also discuss the cultural practices, pest management strategies, and cultivar selections for common fall vegetable crops, including: beets, bok choy, carrots, green onions, kale, radishes, lettuce and other leafy greens.
There is no fee for the class, but pre-registration is required.
