A Great Morning at Walter Andersen Nursery in Poway!
Good afternoon, Growers!
Twenty-five or so new potential growers braved the cool weather and light rain to attend this morning's workshop at Walter Andersen Nursery, in Poway, California. This is the first time I've spoken at Walter Andersen, and it was a very fun and productive experience. The attendees were very enthusiastic, and the dozen or so, pedigree seedlings, together with some soil amendments donated by Kellogg Garden Products, that were given away as door prizes, may have been a factor in that enthusiasm.
The last two workshops of the season will be Saturday, June 7th, 11:00 a.m., at Orange County Farm Supply, 1826 West Chapman Avenue, Orange, CA, 92868, and Sunday, June 8th, 1:00 p.m., at Fullerton Arboretum, 1900 Associated Road, Fullerton, CA, 92831.
Yes, special giant pumpkin seedlings will be given away as prizes at both workshops! (Stop by if you think you might need a back-up seedling and you're feeling lucky.)
The cool weather is helping this week's transplanted seedlings adapt to their new surroundings.
