Garden seminar all about tomatoes

The spring series of the Four Seasons Gardening program, from University of Illinois Extension, continues with a session titled “All About Tomatoes: Strategies for Controlling Common Pests and Disorders” at 1 p.m. May 7 and 6:30 p.m. May 9. Both sessions will be presented via teleconference at the DeKalb County Center for Agriculture, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore.

Although tomatoes are considered a garden favorite and easy to grow, they can succumb to a number of pests and environmental disorders that result in disappointment for the grower. In this session, participants will learn how to identify the most common tomato diseases and insect pests and how best to control them in a home garden setting. Nutritional disorders and other common environmentally-induced problems will be discussed as well. This is the third session of the spring series. The next program, “Don’t Doubt the Drought,” is set for May 21 and 23.

Cost for the session is $5. Advance registration is needed. For more information, call 815-758-8194, email bmacarus@illinois.edu or visit web.extension.illinois.edu/bdo. If you have disability needs, please indicate when registering.
