As spring nears, it’s time to start thinking about your garden. To get some fertilizing tips, Hendricks County Garden Club is hosting a virtual event on Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.The ZOOM meeting called Fertilizing Your Garden and Houseplants the Right Way will feature guest speaker Cari Peters Raymond from the J.R. Peters Fertilizer Company based in Pennsylvania. The self-described plant nut is working to bring new fertilizer formulas to the horticulture industry and is part of the Seed Your Future movement that inspires people to pursue careers in horticulture. She’ll discuss a variety of plant nutrition formulations and which ones are best for roses, petunias, succulents, tomatoes, beans and more. Many gardeners think any plant fertilizer will do the job but Raymond says that the N-P-K label on your fertilizer can really make a difference to the health of your plants. The virtual event is free and open to anyone. Guests must pre-register to participate. Once you do, you’ll receive a link and password.
“In these times of physical distancing, our club is committed to eliminating social isolation, so please join us,” said Deloris Elza, President Hendricks County Garden Club.
