For people who need to know how to install and maintain these new gardens, the University of Georgia will host the Interior Plantscape Workshop Friday, Sept. 27, at the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens in Savannah, Ga.
University of Georgia faculty and other experts will explore keeping roots healthy, testing soil and water, pruning, lighting, controlling diseases and insects and staying abreast of new plants and cultivars. People who take part in the full workshop will earn four pesticide credits.
The program will begin with 8 a.m. registration. It will end at 4 p.m. Lunch is provided. The fee is $40, and the deadline is Sept. 13. To learn more, call the Bamboo Farm at (912) 921-5460.
