The Roundup -

NDSU Workshops For Gardeners Offered In April


North Dakota State University is offering a series of workshops for gardeners. A team of 12 university experts will present information on timely topics in gardening and landscaping.

The Spring Fever Garden Forums will be held on Monday nights in April (April 4, 11, 18 and 25). Sessions run from 6:30 to 8:45 pm CDT. “All gardeners are invited to attend our forums,” states Marcia Hellandsaas, NDSU Extension Agent/McKenzie County. “It is a great opportunity to learn of gardening trends and see the latest research from NDSU.”

Experts will share information on new varieties of flowers and vegetables, landscaping with small trees, transplanting trees, attracting pollinators, growing fruits, pruning shrubs, and improving your garden soil. These speakers will give short presentations and then answer your questions.

Presentations are made before a live audience in Fargo and delivered to over 20 Extension sites across the state. Sites will offer hands-on activities such as starting seeds and growing microgreens. Free samples of seeds and bulbs will be provided to registrants.

Gardeners have the option of participating in the live presentations on their home computer. For a full list of presentations and to register, go to or contact the NDSU Extension Service/McKenzie County by calling 701-444-3451 or email Extension Agent Marcia Hellandsaas at [email protected]
