Visit Master Gardeners this weekend at Shoreline and LFP Farmers Markets

Friday, August 14, 2015

Got garden questions?

  • What is the difference between an annual and a perennial?
  • Is there anything I can do about the powdery mildew on my zinnias?
  • What vegetables can I plant now?
  • My squash keeps wilting on hot days even though I water it well--it seems ok the next morning though. What am I doing wrong?
  • Is there anything I can do about the squirrels that are climbing my sunflowers and eating the seeds?
What's happening to this tomato?

Do the blossom ends (opposite the end where the stem is) of your tomatoes look something like this? You may have blossom end rot, caused by a calcium deficiency.

The WSU Extension Master Gardeners of King County staff weekly clinics all over King County from April through November (dates vary by location) to answer questions just like these that were asked at last week's clinics.

Master Gardeners are folks who have gone through an intensive training and internship and share their passion for gardening by addressing your landscaping and gardening challenges. This service is free!! If you have a plant problem you would like diagnosed, bring a photo or better yet, a sample. 

This weeks clinics are:

Saturday, August 15
Shoreline Farmer's Market
Aurora Square at 155th and Aurora
(near Central Market and Sears)
10am -- 3pm

Sunday, August 16
Ace Hardware and Lake Forest Park Farmers Market
17171 Bothell Way NE (Town Center at LFP)
