Cool-season lawn, garden care workshop set for Nov. 11

(11/08/23) BATON ROUGE, La. — The LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden is partnering with the East Baton Rouge Parish Master Gardeners to teach about cool-season lawn and garden topics at a workshop on Nov.11.

As the temperature gradually makes the transition from boiling to crisp, lawn and garden care should be on your upcoming agenda.

Attendees of the lawn and garden care workshop can expect to learn about planning cool-season seeds, trees, shrubs and bedding plants; lawn dos and don’ts; pruning; and plant freeze protection.

The workshop will begin with a lecture from 9 to 10 a.m. Afterward, there will be a plant swap until 11 a.m.

If you don’t know what a plant swap is, the basic concept is you leave a plant and you take a plant. A plant swap is not an opportunity to sell plants, but an opportunity to give away and trade plants and cuttings.

Bring only pest-free plants and be sure they are plants you would be excited to receive. All plants should be labeled in an easily transportable container.

East Baton Rouge Parish Master Gardener Leo Broders will lead the lecture for this free event that is open to the public.

The workshop will be held at the LSU AgCenter Botanic Gardens at Burden, 4560 Essen Lane in Baton Rouge.
