Hot Houses for a Cool Coast
From Lincoln County Master Gardeners
Our coastal winds, drenching downpours and cool weather make growing vegetables and flowers a challenge in Lincoln County. Therefore! Garden structures that keep heat in and wind out are a great solution for getting plants established early and keeping delicate ones growing throughout the year.
If you want to learn how to jump start your garden and work in the soil year-round, the “All About Greenhouses” Round Table program is a great opportunity. This Round Table will take place on Thursday, February 26, from 10 a.m. until noon in the Community Room at the Oregon Coast Community College in South Beach.
James Knox, co-owner of Samuri Greenhouse Supplies in Albany, OR, and Dan Barrett, owner of Toledo’s, Affordable Space, will be on hand to present a range of greenhouse concepts and designs, from small cloches to commercial hot houses. They’ll field your questions about sizing , construction, coverings, soil, heat retention and much more.
This event is free to all, but please call the OSU Extension Office at 541-574-6534 to ensure adequate seating and materials.
“All About Greenhouses” is the second in the Lincoln County Master Gardeners Round Table series for 2015. This is the fourth year that the Master Gardeners are sponsoring round table discussions oriented to gardeners and the general public. Eight round tables are being held this spring, and three will take place in the fall. A list of topics, dates and times is available on line at oregonstate.edu/lincoln/master_gardeners or by calling the Lincoln County Extension office at 541-574-6534.
