HAND TOOL CLEANING AND SHARPENING
When is the best time to prune? When your tools are clean and sharp! Join us for a hands-on workshop on cleaning and sharpening garden tools. We invest time and money on garden tools and at the most, we may get mud off them at the end of the season. Come and learn how to properly maintain and clean your hand tools. Sharpening makes all the difference in the amount of effort needed to prune, cut and dig! Bring two hand tools and your sharpening implements (if you have them) to class to get hands-on experience with a coach in cleaning and sharpening. We’ll also have supplies on hand if you don’t. If you’re in the market to buy tools, this is a good chance to hear our experience and that of your classmates. Oh, leave the chain saw at home. That’s for the advanced class! Speaker is Chet Wasik and Associates, Extension Master gardener (SM) Volunteers. In case of inclement weather the backup date is Thursday February 28.

Description: Join the NC Extension Master Gardener Volunteers of Guilford County for a lively and informative gardening presentation each month through the fall season. These “Lunch and Learn” sessions are all scheduled from 12:00 noon until 1:00 pm: no refreshments are provided, but participants are welcome to bring and eat lunch during the program. Take a mid-day break from your schedule and talk gardening with friends!

Spring will soon become summer, so it’s time to talk flowers! Annuals and perennials are the foundation of any flower garden, large or small - choosing and using the right plants for your space will get you growing successfully. Flower beds or flowering containers, or a combination, can create a garden in any location and reward you with beautiful blooms.
