‘Gardening in a Drought’

8 a.m. Saturday

OSU Extension Office, 316 E. Oxford

Learn all about how to keep your plants healthy during drought at a special workshop this Saturday at the OSU Extension Office.

Sessions will provide information on how to use the Mesonet to decide how much water you need; how to use plasticulture; and the methods of watering and their pros and cons, including rain barrels, sprinklers, soaker hoses and drip irrigation systems.

During a tour of the Master Gardener Arboretum, uses of mulch will be explained. There also will be a tour of the Oklahoma Proven Garden — a plant evaluation and marketing program designed to assist in selecting the best plants for Oklahoma’s weather.

Cost of the workshop is $35, which includes an information packet. Proceeds will go toward Garfield County Master Gardener Demonstration Garden and Arboretum.
