Four Seasons Gardening seminar to discuss effects of drought on landscape

WOODSTOCK – The spring series of the Four Seasons Gardening program from University of Illinois Extension concludes with a session titled “Don’t Doubt the Drought.”

The program will be offered at 6:30 p.m. Thursday via teleconference at the McHenry County Extension office, 1102 McConnell Road, Woodstock.

2012 was hot and dry – how will landscapes respond in the years to come?

This program will discuss growth expectations in 2013 on lawns, newly planted trees, shrubs and evergreens.

How will the drought affect flowering plants such as perennials, flowering shrubs and ornamental trees?

What should we be looking for with established trees and what are some of the best management practices for helping landscape plants recover?

The cost for the session is $5. Advance registration is required.
