PORT ANGELES — Veteran WSU Clallam County Master Gardener Jeanette Stehr-Green will talk about blueberry plants at noon today.

She will describe the ideal planting site for blueberries and soil acidity, fertilization and watering requirements. She also will provide tips for pruning blueberry bushes and identify good resources on growing blueberries.

A frequent educational speaker for the Master Gardener program, she has written numerous articles for local newspaper gardening columns, appears monthly on the “Todd Ortloff Show” on KONP and may be heard on the KSQM “Garden Show.” She also leads summer garden walks at the Fifth Street Garden in Port Angeles.
