California garden and greenhouse tips

Californian garden and greenhouse owners have been given the chance to pick up some growing tips from the experts.

Master gardener Anne Van Galder yesterday (February 22nd) appeared on KSEE Sunrise, telling viewers how to brighten up their garden with bulbs.

Those who missed out can access the video online and may also be interested in heading to the Smart Gardening Conference which is being organised by The Master Gardeners for this Saturday (February 27th).

The event will take place in the Ramada Hotel in Fresno and will cost $25 for those who obtain tickets in advance, while attendees paying at the door will be charged an extra $10.

Visitors will get a packed lunch, some breakfast bites and a welcome bag and will also be granted access to vendor booths, garden book sales and prize draws.

As part of the day, which runs from 08:00 local time until 17:00, the University of Californias horticulture experts will give a talk on a number of modern gardening issues.

Meanwhile, Washingtons has suggested that growing from seed could be a cost-effective way to get the best out of your garden and greenhouse.
