Penn State Extension Master Gardeners of Luzerne County will hold their 2013 Spring into Gardening Workshop on Saturday, April 27 at the Technology Center, Penn State Wilkes-Barre Campus, Lehman.

The all-day workshop will include sessions on turf management, trees for your landscape, expressing personality in the garden, soil, water features in gardens, shade gardens, gardening for four seasons and vegetable gardening in unusual weather.

Vincent J. Cotrone, Regional Extension Urban Forester, will be the keynote speaker discussing “Trees and Shrubs in a Changing Landscape.”

Flooding rains, hurricane force winds, droughts, extreme heat, early spring bud break followed by late frosts are becoming the new normal that our landscapes must be designed for and adapted to.

Participants will explore how changing climate is impacting our landscapes, shifting some species north while extending the growing season for others.

Learn how our landscapes can ameliorate new weather extremes and how to design landscapes that will survive a changing climate.

A plant sale and flea market will be held on premise and Master Gardeners will be available at the information table to answer your personal gardening questions.

For more information, contact Penn State Extension, Luzerne County, at 825-1701.
