The Delaware County Master Gardeners are giving you a chance to start planning for spring.

They’ll be holding their annual “Mondays in March” again this year, with one speaker to talk about a gardening topic each Monday night in March.

“Mondays in March” will kick off on March 4th with landscape designer and writer Judy Nauseef, who will talk about “Native Plants for the Gardener: Sustainable Choices”.

On March 11th, former restaurant owner Betty Kruse will speak on “Herbs from Garden to Table”.

Keith Ashline, the owner of Blueberry Hill Farm, will speak on March 18th about “Growing Blueberries”.

And “Mondays in March” will wrap up on March 25th with a discussion on “Windbreaks and Trees for Conservation”. Ken Klein, State Technician with Natural Resources Conservation Service of Iowa, and Chris Hiher, Farm Bill Biologist with Pheasants Forever, will be the speakers.

“Mondays in March” starts at 7 pm each night at Our Savior Lutheran Church in Manchester. The public is welcome, with a two dollar donation taken at the door. Door prizes will also be given away.
