It's that time of year again. The UC Master Gardeners of Solano County are going to be at Home Depot in Fairfield, to answer any gardening questions you may have.
If you are new to our area Home Depot is located at 2121 Cadenasso Dr., next to Target.
Also, if you don't know or have not heard about us, we are all volunteers from every walk of life, retired people, people who still are employed but all have one thing in common, gardening.
The Master Gardeners are part of the UC Cooperative Extension who have gone through a 16-week training on most garden information, for us and the public. We then set up information tables at different locations in Solano County: Fairfield, Vacaville, Vallejo, and Benicia.
When you see one of our information tables you can stop by and get information on a variety of subjects, plants, lawn, fertilizer etc.
Starting March 23 this year we will be at Home Depot in Fairfield. Depending on the weather, our table will be set up either in the outside garden or inside.
We will be there every other Saturday from 9 am until 1 pm. The time is an hour earlier than in previous years giving you an hour earlier in the summer before it gets hot to start your gardening projects.
We have information on How to Attract Pollinators, “good bugs” and the least toxic pest control to safely get rid of the “bad bugs”. We have pest notes on almost every insect, good and bad, a vegetable planting guide just to name a few of the material we have. All the information on gardening is free.
We also have a newsletter Seeds for Thought and how to get on our blog, Under the Solano Sun. The information for both newsletter and blog is created by Master Gardeners. Ask about signing up to receive these, if we forget to ask you.
So remember starting March 23 until Oct 3 of this year the Master Gardeners will be at Home Depot, Fairfield every other Saturday. Stop by and have a look at the information we have, or even just to say “hi".
