It has the power to instantly liven up any dish and treat some of the most common ailments. Do you know how to grow garlic? Come to the Cornell Cooperative Master Gardeners Evening in the Garden, August 15th at 6:00pm, and meet some Master Gardeners who will be discussing the types of garlic that grow well in our area, when to plant garlic, and how to care for it after harvest. Wicki Stapleton, Master Gardener, will lead the garlic discussion and will also discuss the benefits of winter sowing. On the agenda there will be a discussion on How to Water for Better Tasting Crops led by Faith Segrest, Master Gardener. As usual, we will have an “Ask a Master Gardener” time for your questions. Free soil Ph testing will also be offered if you bring a small, dry, soil sample to the event.

The Evening in the Garden is held in the Master Gardener’s demonstration garden at the Frank Bratt Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Road, in Jamestown. Come see what is growing in our garden.
