Low maintenance flower gardening workshop

The Carroll County Extension Homemakers presents a low maintenance flower gardening workshop at the Carroll County Extension Office on Saturday, April 27 from 10 a.m. to noon.

This hands-on workshop will cover topics including “What does ‘low maintenance’ actually mean?” In addition, you will learn to identify some annuals and perennials as well as learn about designing landscape beds and plant placement.

Due to the hands-on nature of the workshop, the class size is limited to 15 people. The class is filling up, so if you are interested in attending, you must RSVP to the Extension office.

Bring your insect and plant identifications to the Extension office

With the warmer spring weather upon us, the services we can provide at the Carroll County Extension Office can be a helpful hand to your farming and gardening tasks.

If you have an insect or plant that you were wondering the name of, bring it to the Extension Office to be identified. Insects can be brought in alive or dead for identification. If the insect is alive, be sure it is in a closed, secure container before bringing it to the office. For plant identification, it is best to bring in the whole plant, roots included.

The Extension Service can also provide to you a wide range of information including gardening techniques, control tactics for insects and weeds, lawn care, and other agricultural practices in easy-to-read publications.

Simply put, if you have an agriculture-related question, ask me at the Extension Office and I will work diligently to find you the answer.

Not only can we serve you through agriculture, but the Extension Office is the one-stop place for all things involving 4-H. Our 4-H Agent, Joyce Doyle, is the lady to ask about 4-H. 

In addition, our FCS Agent, Grace Angotti, can answer all of your questions regarding family and consumer sciences.

Remember, all of us at the Carroll County Extension Office are here to serve you in the best way we can.

For more information, contact the Carroll County Cooperative Extension Service at (502) 732-7030 or stop by our office, located at 500 Floyd Drive in Carrollton.
