I enjoy reading other gardening blogs, particularly those that share research based information. Recently, I’ve read a couple of great articles that pertain to Durham gardeners and/or gardening in Durham, so I thought I’d share the links.
Do you want to know how to properly amend our clay soil? There are so many products in stores (and some of you may have done it differently “up North”). The Durham Council of Garden Clubs blog posted this great article last week, discussing amendments that are recommended and NOT recommended. This is a must-read if you are hoping to improve your soil. http://durhamcouncilofgardenclubs.blogspot.com/2014/09/clay-soil-amendments-for-durham-county.html
If you are a subscriber to the Durham Herald Sun, you may have seen Saturday’s article about the upcoming Extension Master Gardener Volunteer training classes. Subscribers who missed the article can read it here http://www.heraldsun.com/durhamherald/x1412773066/Become-a-master-gardener-and-give-back-to-Durham (apologies to non-subscribers, past issues are not available online without a subscription).
Feel free to share your favorite garden blogs in comments.
