Marshall- Putnam Master Gardeners clean Marshall County Courthouse gardens

NEWS RELEASE – SUBMITTED BY Anne Scheel

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS EXTENSION – Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall, Putnam Unit

 

           The University of Illinois Extension, Marshall-Putnam Master Gardeners worked together to fall clean the Marshall County Courthouse gardens.  Jean Davis the County Circuit Clerk and a Master Gardener planted the two gardens years ago.  During her lunch she would work, taking care of the gardens she enjoyed daily.  Over the last several years the gardens have became overgrown and the beauty hidden.  The Marshall-Putnam Master Gardeners and the Marshall County Board began working on a plan to rework the gardens.

                Clearing off the gardens for the winter is the beginning of the Court House Garden beautification.   Next spring work will begin to enhance the gardens.   The Marshall-Putnam University of Illinois Extension Master Gardeners will help divide different types of Hostas with gardeners from around the county willing to help with the gardens.   If you want to be notified of the Beautification Workday, contact the University of Illinois Extension Marshall-Putnam Unit in Henry 309 364-2356.   A class will be given on dividing Hostas at this time and everyone helping will receive hostas.

 

If you need a reasonable accommodation, please indicate when registering.
