Come Learn Some Dirty Words At Fernwood Nursery
Join us at Fernwood Nursery on Sunday, May 20th, 2018 from 2:00 to 4:00 to talk about what’s in your dirt! Green sand, blood meal, and mycorrhiza are just a few of the ”dirty” words you’ll hear when we talk about soil here at Fernwood! We’ll discuss soil structure, the essential components for soil health and plant growth, and how to amend your own garden plots using organic materials that are easily sourced. Find out which animal manures do what, learn about the important minerals in your soil, and discover the benefits of green manures,. Interested in making your own potting soil? We’ll talk about this as well and…. you’ll go home with a sample bag of our own homemade potting mix (along with the recipe)!
In addition to a lively discussion about dirt, freshly baked scones and tea will be served.
Here at Fernwood, we are famous for saying “ if you want to grow good plants, grow good soil” so come join us for an informative afternoon of soil talk!

Oh, lady slippers! So lovely.
I wish I’d known the importance of healthy soil years ago but my ignorance led me to learn the hard way… When I think of the time/work and money spent on all the rose bushes and Rose of Sharon bushes etc. I planted that didn’t make it (due to the clay soil out here) I could cry……..
Two topics close to my gardening heart. 🙂 Which train station is closest to you? I’m still working on getting myself to Maine and having coffee or lunch with you, Laurie and Brenda.
Let’s do it! that would be wonderful!
