Alpharetta To Host A Workshop on Planting Trees & Shrubs

Released September 27, 2017 01:08 PM

The City of Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Natural Resources Commission, along with the UGA Cooperative Extension North Fulton Master Gardeners, will offer a workshop for homeowners on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.  The class will be held at the City of Alpharetta Public Works Department, 1790 Hembree Road, Alpharetta, Georgia 30009.

 

While many of us get energized to improve our yards and gardens in the spring, fall is the best time in Georgia to plant (and move) shrubs and trees; as well as, prepare soil for next year’s plantings.  Our clay soil is much easier to work with in the fall and most shrubs and trees will do better when they have the opportunity to get established over the winter.

 

This free class, conducted by Master Gardeners, will cover:

 

•        Planting Trees

•        Preparing Soil for Ornamentals

•        Selecting Shrubs for Desired Location

•        Planting (and Moving) Shrubs

•        Mulching

•        Watering

•        Fertilizing

 

Please register for this class on Eventbrite at https://goo.gl/sLgxjn or by calling (678) 297-6200 by October 17, 2017.  For more information, please contact Terry Porter at (678) 297-6200 or tporter@alpharetta.ga.us.
