As lots of of you know, horticultural schooling is one of the key directives for not only the Tulsa County OSU Extension but also for the Tulsa Learn Gardeners. Because of this, we train about horticulture wherever we can and in whatsoever methods we can. As element of that educational outreach, we have two prospects for you on the horizon.
Here’s a issue we get requested many periods: What kind of plant would you advocate for my location/condition? We have lists of crops that are proper for specified locations that are each annuals and perennials, but from time to time it’s really hard to make decisions primarily based on photographs or descriptions. What genuinely assists is to see the plants “in the wild,” so to communicate. To support that occur, the Tulsa Grasp Gardeners have a annually Garden Tour with Master Gardeners readily available at every locale to respond to your inquiries. This year’s backyard garden tour concept is “Luxury Landscapes,” and we have 5 wonderfully landscaped properties to inspire you.
