When the temperature drops and snow falls, it's hard to imagine your garden green and growing – but now's the best time to plan. "Planning Your Garden" is the first of several free gardening programs this spring at the Huber Heights Branch of the Dayton Metro Library, 6160 Chambersburg Road. The program takes place Tuesday, February 24, 6:30 p.m.
"This program is for both vegetable and flower gardeners," said Karen Findlay, Assistant Branch Manager and Seed Lending Library Coordinator. "Bring your favorite catalogs and a picture of your garden from last year, if you have one. Participants will be inspired by examples of lovely gardens, gain a lot of advice and have the opportunity to network with other gardeners in the area," she said.
The Huber Heights Branch Library offers Seed Lending Library, which allows patrons to both donate and take seeds.
"Our Seed Lending Library is a nice way for gardeners to share plants that work for them, and to experiment with varieties they may not have tried before," said Findlay.
Upcoming gardening topics at Huber Heights Branch Library programs include:
The programs are free but advance registration is required. To register, call the Huber Heights Branch Library at 937-496-8934.
