Your May flowers have already bloomed, but the work is never done in your garden.

Neither are the questions: What should you do with all that basil you grew on your windowsill and when is the best time to move your succulents outside?

Get free answers and advice from Lake County Master Gardeners this June at Mentor Public Library.

First, a Master Gardener will offer helpful advice on how to care for your annual and perennial herbs at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 6, at our Main Branch.

Then, another Master Gardener will discuss the care and propagation of succulents, both the ones that grow as houseplants and outdoor as ground covers, at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, June 13, at our Main Branch. The gardener will also explain how to successfully bring them inside for the winter and back out in the spring.

Both programs are free and open to everyone. You can register for either or both by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 241.

You can borrow heirloom and organic seeds from us the same way you’d borrow a book or movie. Pick from our dozens of varieties of herbs, flowers, vegetables and fruit seeds. Take up to 15 types of seed per year.

All we ask is that when the seeds grow into plants, you save some of its seeds and return them to the library.
