Come learn the secrets of successfully growing garden produce when Pend Oreille County Master Gardeners present “Growing the Best” gardening class.
The class will be held Thursday, March 8, at the WSU/Pend Oreille County Extension Office, 227 S. Garden Ave., Newport, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. A knowledgeable and experienced team of Master Gardeners and community gardeners will teach tips on popular fruits, flowers and vegetables that grow well in the region, including cucumbers, dahlias, beets, beans, onions, corn, carrots gladiolas, and blueberries. Class participants will also learn about the fun of earning ribbons and, possibly, money by entering homegrown fruits, flowers and vegetables in the Pend Oreille County and Interstate Fairs.
