Currituck County Master Gardener Volunteer and owner of Fuggles Flower Farm, Dr. Emily Nekl is presenting another free course on March 7th from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. at the N.C. Cooperative Extension Currituck County Center, located at 120 Community Way in Barco.
”It’s time to organize your summer gardening work! Oh my, how vegetables really do love flowers, especially flowers that you can cut and bring into your home or gift to all your favorite people,” Nekl said.
“In this roundtable discussion, we will discuss how to get both summer vegetables and magnificent flowers to thrive in your annual garden plot,” Nekl said.
“We will start with ground preparation and garden design for minimum management and then dive into heat-loving vegetables and flowers, such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, corn, basil, sunflowers, celosia, zinnia, marigold, and gomphrena,” Nekl said.
“Learn how to attract beneficial organisms to your soil using vegetables and flowers as a lure! Your garden’s summer bounty will be immense!”
