News Release

Piatt County - Hands-on Horticulture Series continues in August with Cut Flower Gardening in Piatt County

Extension Horticulture Educator Candice Hart continues her how-to gardening series Hands-on Horticulture with Hart on August 6 with Cut Flower Gardening. Cut flower gardening can be an easy endeavor to increase flowers in the garden while also displaying a beautiful vase to decorate your home. Join Hart and learn how to grow cut flowers, their benefit to your garden and how to condition them to last longer.

A fee will be charged to cover the cost for materials and participants will leave with a vase of garden flowers to take home.
This program will meet from 6-7:30pm in the Visitor Ceneter Auditorium in Allerton Park Visitor Center Auditorium located at 515 Old Timber Road in Monticello. Parking is available in the main/mansion lot. Advance registration is required by August 3 by visiting Allerton.illinois.edu. Please contact Candice at 217.935.5764 or mille116@illinois.edu for more information.

Upcoming topics in the Hands-on Horticulture with Hart series are Fall Bulbs in September and Utilizing Dried Flowers from the Garden in October.
