Garden seminar on drought impact

The spring series of the Four Seasons Gardening program from University of Illinois Extension concludes with a session titled “Don’t Doubt the Drought.” The program is offered at 1 p.m. Tuesday via teleconference at the DeKalb County Center for Agriculture, 1350 W. Prairie Drive in Sycamore.

2012 was hot and dry – how will landscapes respond in the years to come? This program will discuss growth expectations in 2013 on lawns, newly planted trees, shrubs and evergreens. How will the drought impact flowering plants such as perennials, flowering shrubs and ornamental trees? What should we look for with established trees and what are some of the best management practices for helping landscape plants recover?

Cost for the session is $5. Advance registration is required. 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.
