March Showers bring April Flowers! No?
Tell that to the Super Bloom 2017!
On a local scale, you too may have your own flower explosion thanks to all the rainfall we've experienced in Southern California this year so far.
Welcome to the monthly installment of “This Month In the Garden” for April on the In The Garden with UC Master Gardeners radio show. UC Master Gardeners and KUCI Staff hosts Teena Spindler and Katrina Kirkeby get together every month to discuss what you might want to consider working on or planning for in your garden. April is the month to start watching for caterpillars and worms and keep them in check.
They can wreak havoc if left to go uncontrolled. However, care must be made to safeguard the beneficial birds and such that feed on them. Master Gardeners use University of California- approved, science-based techniques in all aspects of gardening and these techniques are what we share with you on this show every week.
