How to Plant and Care for Basil

Tuesday May 12, 2009 • 5:30 PM

This meeting has passed.

Master Gardeners will demonstrate "How to Plant and Care for Basil" on Tuesday, May 12, 5:30 pm.

Master Gardener Sandy Pecori will show how to plant basil seed directly in the garden. And she'll offer tips on tending the plants, from watering seed and seedlings, thinning and keeping the growing plants trimmed to produce compact and healthy plants through the season.

Presentation will last approximately 30 minutes followed by a question and answer session.

Master Gardeners are volunteers of the University of Illinois Extension Sangamon-Menard. The demonstration will be in the Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens in front of the U of I Extension building.

Programs are free and open to the public and will be held at the University of Illinois Extension Building, Illinois State Fairgrounds, Springfield. If you have any questions call Sangamon-Menard Extension Unit at (217) 782-4617.
