Fall Rountable Series
The Fall Roundtable Series addresses a number of new topics of interest to many coastal gardeners. Each session will be held at the OSU Extension Office from 10-noon.
Oct 22 Dig and Divide
After a few years in the garden, bulbs and certain perennials may start to produce smaller blooms, develop a 'bald spot' at the center of their crown, or require staking to prevent their stems from falling over. All of these signs indicate it is time to divide. This session will teach you how to properly divide and replant. We'll have clumps of plants to practice on--or bring a clump of your own. Attendees get to take home divided plants.
