The plants are doing well. They are getting established and growing new roots and there are lots of blooms already. We’re excited everything is doing well. We also got some plant donations from Treasure island, so thanks to them for some Day Lilies. They were planted with the grasses on the north side of the building. That’s looking much better now with more plants in it. We also got some ice plants from Plant Select that were placed amongst the garden.
Plans for the garden are moving along. Now that it’s tested, amended, prepared and planted and the irrigation is in the next step is to put signage in the garden. We are in the process of having name plates made for each variety of plant. We will have a Weld County Demo Garden sign placed and also a CSU Extension sign in the garden. We are also planning a grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony during the Weld County Fair – Stay tuned!!
Thanks to Master Gardener Noel Johnston we have an information kiosk. We will keep it full of Weld County Master Gardener information as well as garden brochures etc. Noel built it and his wife painted it and it was installed last week. Thanks Noel. Looks great.
If you are near the Island Grove Fairgrounds come take a peek at the garden.
