Kicking off 2017's series of East Baton Rouge Master Gardener talks is, "It's Your Year To Get Rosy!" The presentation at Jones Creek Branch Library will explore the wide variety of roses particularly suited to the area, with an emphasis on both old faithfuls and newer, carefree varieties. Tips on rose selection, care, and pruning will also be offered.
The second presentation, "Lawn Care Essentials," explains how homeowners can achieve a beautiful, low-maintenance lawn with a little planning and sensible, routine maintenance. Participants can expect to learn about weed and pest prevention through proper mowing and watering practices, and gain advice on which grasses to plant where, controlling already-existing weed problems, and fertilization.
