For Yardiac's Located in the Upstate

Just came across this great program and thought our local readers may have interest in this. Register now for a five-week basic gardening program, "Sowing & Growing in the Lowcountry: Fundamentals of Horticulture," that begins June 25 in the Orientation Theater at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. The class meets from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays through July 23. The cost is $75 per person or $100 per family of two adults. This includes textbooks, handouts and a home lawn or garden soil test. This is a beginner's level home-gardening series that includes how to create garden soil, color and texture in the garden; easy annual and perennials; warm-season lawns; basic tree care; and starting a fall vegetable garden. Instructors are Mark Arena, Clemson Extension commercial horticulture agent, Jonathan Croft, Clemson Extension agriculture agent; and Amy Dabbs, Clemson Extension horticulture agent and master gardener coordinator.
