Spring has nearly sprung, and we have partnered with the Lake County Master Gardeners for a monthly series of garden talks to help both expert and budding green thumbs.
The first talk will be hosted online via Zoom at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 13. The Master Gardeners will explain how you can use cues from nature – also known as phenology – to learn what plants and animals will thrive in your garden.
Registration is required to get the Zoom link. You can sign up on our website or by calling us at (440) 255-8811 ext. 247.
Two more tips for any gardeners out there:
1. Did you know that you can get free veggie, flower, and herb seeds from our Seed Library? Check out our collection the next time you visit our Main Branch. Borrow up to 15 packets of seeds per season.
2. By the way, any green thumbs should check out the special collection from Holden Forests & Gardens’ Corning Library available at our Main Branch. In addition to a gorgeous arboretum in Kirtland, Holden also has a spectacular collection of gardening, horticulture, environmental and botany books at Corning Library within its arboretum.
Dozens of Corning Library’s books are now available to borrow at our Main Branch. Thanks to a partnership between libraries, you can use your cards to check out books from this special collection. Our typical lending rules apply.
3. Finally, we are hosting a garden-themed story time that will end with kids planting their own little starter gardens on March 18. Keep an eye on our program calendar, because registration opens for that program on March 4.
