If you’ve ever thought about bringing home an exotic orchid to brighten your home, now is the time to do it! Orchids are easier to grow than you might think. We’ll discuss all the growing requirements: watering, feeding, sunlight, and soil. Bring your questions!
Growing Small Fruits and Berries
Saturday, April 18,2015 1 p.m.
Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, currants, gooseberries and grapes are easy to grow along the Front Range. Blueberries are possible, too, but have special requirements. These crops have the added benefit of being perennial so plant them once and you’ll harvest for years to come. We’ll discuss the planting and pruning of each crop and give you harvest tips, too.

Houseplants are a great addition to any home or office, even if you don’t have a sunny window.

How to Make Your Own Compost
Saturday, April 25,2015 1 pm
Our Colorado soils are notoriously low in organic matter (OM). Good quality compost is an important addition to your entire landscape. It adds essential nutrients and organic matter to the soil that improves the health and drought resistance of flowers, vegetables, trees, shrubs and lawns. We sell a wide range of high-quality compost here at Wilmore, but did you know you can make your own? Start turning scraps into valuable nutrients for your garden. We’ll discuss the different compost bins available and what to put in them. It’s important to get the mix right to encourage materials to break down and avoid odors. We’ll also briefly discuss worm composting (that’s composting with worms, not composting the worms.)
