Join Whiteside County Master Gardeners throughout the year, and explore the world of gardening! There will be a special swag bag for a lucky individual at the end of the year! Join us on February 12, 2022 for: Grab your Webster’! It’s time for Plant Phenology! “Plant peas, beets, lettuce and other cool weather varieties when the first leaves appear on the lilac bush. When lilac flowers are in full bloom plant corn, beans and squash.” Common garden folklore or common sense? Phenology in the garden is simply observing nature – from bud burst to bird migration and everything in between. As gardeners, phenology can help guide the planting schedule, along with other practical information. Join Whiteside County Master Gardeners and learn to garden by the signs. Grab your Webster’s!
