Date posted: September 24, 2013
SHERIDAN — Landon’s Greenhouse and Nursery is offering three free workshops Saturday.
At 10 a.m., Kelly Norris of the Department of Forestry will host “Making the Cut: Pruning Dos and Don’ts.” This workshop will cover all aspects of pruning trees at an early stage in order to prevent snow load and wind damage. Norris will discuss basic pruning techniques, timing and disease control. This workshop will be held outside on Landon’s property, so dress for the weather that day.
Lloyd Marsden will present “Grapes into Wine: Turn your Bunches into Beverages” at 1 p.m. He will demonstrate how to make wine out of locally-grown fruit. Learn when to harvest for the best taste, what equipment you’ll need and how to manipulate the fermenting process for maximum flavor.
At 3 p.m., Jessica Bohnsack will present “Unplugged! Fall Bulbs.” Fall bulbs must be planted now. Learn which way is up, how deep you should dig and what fertilizers increase your success.
Landon’s requests pre-registration for these workshops. Call 672-8340 to sign up or stop by Landon’s at 505 College Meadow Drive.
