Fall Planting with Dave Rogers Master Gardener Class of 2014

Dave engaging the crowd on Fall Planting Saturday August 15th

Great Turnout for the seminar
 All fall plants donated to the Harvest of Hope garden by Good Hope Garden in Blountville. Product donated were broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower for HOH.

Dave did a great job showing seminar attendees the correct way to plant and water fall plants to stride during fall and winter months. Special attention must be given to the care of plants due to less sunlight and water.
