Minnesota Gardening Calendar 2017
The new Minnesota Gardening calendar is now available for purchase at the Extension offices in Duluth and Virginia. The calendar features beautiful color photography, expert gardening advice for Minnesota gardeners, a planting guide, and more. It makes a perfect gift for new and experienced gardeners.
Our horticulture offerings include spring workshops on gardening and landscape materials, commercial workshops on greenhouse production, small fruit production, vegetable production and nursery production, applied research on vegetable and small fruit varieties, and family education projects on home gardening as a means of improving diets.
Tune in to KDAL 610 radio on Tuesday mornings from 8:00 to 9:00 am to hear Bob Olen of Extension talk about what you need to know to make your garden successful. Listeners are encouraged to call in with their questions.
