PORT ANGELES — Veteran Clallam County Master Gardeners Bob Cain, Laurel Moulton and Audreen Williams will discuss why waiting is best to plant warm-season crops, such as tomatoes, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday.
The three experts will talk at Fifth Street Community Garden, 328 E. Fifth St., Port Angeles, during the Second Saturday Garden Walk.
Other topics for the walk will include dealing with emerging spring pests — such as cutworms, earwigs and pea leaf weevils — and understanding inter-planting basics.
Home gardeners can get timely advice about vegetable and berry gardening during the walking tour, organizers said.
“They can see what needs to be done in vegetable gardens at this time of year (and how to do it) and talk about problems that are likely to appear and how to deal with them in a sustainable, earth-friendly manner. They may bring their questions and get helpful, science-based advice,” according to a press release.
All Second Saturday Garden Walks are free and open to the public and occur rain or shine. The walks, organizers say, are ideal for people starting a vegetable garden for the first time and gardeners who are new to the Pacific Northwest but also are beneficial to the more experienced gardener.
The Fifth Street Community Garden includes more than 50 individuals plots, each 9 feet by 12 feet.
The event is part of the Second Saturday Garden Walks, an educational series sponsored by WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners that started in April and runs through September.
