Gardening series can help improve your yard for spring

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty County Extension Service wants to help people get their yards right for spring.

The 2014 Spring Gardening Series will start Thursday, February 20 at 6 p.m.

Lawn care, organic and vegetable gardening and pruning are just some of the topics that will be discussed over the 5-week series. The classes are open to everyone.

"It kind of helps you to know what diseases to look at or look out for. When to plant and what to plant. Right now I'm getting a lot of calls on fruit trees as far as what do I need to fertilize them with. When do I need to prune them," said James Morgan, Dougherty County Extension Coordinator.

Classes are at 125 Pine Avenue, Suite 100 in the Candy Room.

They're $8 per seminar or $32 dollars for the whole series. Call 229-436-7216 for more information.
