Early June in Sacramento is perfect gardening weather. So much is in bloom that the specific mix changes daily—come see what the local UC Master Gardeners are up to in the demonstration garden.

All garden sections from vegetables to berries to fruit trees grapple with the same pest problems, watering issues and new variety opportunities that you do. Master Gardeners in each section can discuss current activities, challenges and discoveries. Here is updated information on June’s offerings:

  • A solarization demonstration to combat nematodes will be held in the vegetable area. Also, numerous All-American selections are on display.
  • The presentation “Deadheading: Refreshing Plants for Endless Bloom” will inspire gardeners in the Water Efficient Landscape garden
  • Vineyard advisers can give hints on timely treatment for powdery mildew, thinning canopies for dappled shade and thinning clusters for bigger grapes.
  • The herb garden has shifted from spring to summer plants complete with new rosemary and basil plants and a storied heirloom apothecary rose.
  • The orchard is thinning fruit and pruning trees for better harvest and ease of care.

Have a specific garden question that is vexing you? Feel free to bring bagged samples of plants or pests to the Ask a Master Gardener table. The event is free and will take place rain or shine.
