As lots of of you know, horticultural education is one particular of the key directives for not only the Tulsa County OSU Extension but also for the Tulsa Master Gardeners. Simply because of this, we educate about horticulture anywhere we can and in whichever methods we can. As element of that instructional outreach, we have two alternatives for you on the horizon.
Here’s a dilemma we get requested quite a few times: What variety of plant would you propose for my site/condition? We have lists of vegetation that are acceptable for certain destinations that are each annuals and perennials, but often it is hard to make decisions based on shots or descriptions. What seriously allows is to see the vegetation “in the wild,” so to talk. To enable that come about, the Tulsa Learn Gardeners have a yearly Back garden Tour with Master Gardeners readily available at every place to answer your issues. This year’s back garden tour topic is “Luxury Landscapes,” and we have five superbly landscaped properties to inspire you.
The initial household is titled “From Initially Household to Eternally Property.” These owners have lived in this dwelling for 47 several years, and they have transitioned their property from trampolines and soccer aims into a stunning landscape that contains solar and shade gardens.

Next up, we have the fall version of our City Gardener Education. We teach the tumble sequence for a assortment of reasons: it’s timed to coincide with fall vegetable yard planting schedules, tumble is the greatest time to choose and plant trees and shrubs, and neat-period turf grass does greatest when seeded in the tumble.
There are six Urban Gardener lessons. The 1st a few are what we connect with “Seed to Supper,” which covers soil administration, composting, forms of vegetable gardens, seed picking out, seed beginning, ideas for expanding veggies effectively below in Oklahoma and pure pest handle practices. The 2nd collection, “Lawn and Landscape,” builds on the very first lessons and proceeds with pollinator gardens, trees and shrubs, and turf administration.
The courses start on Tuesday, July 19 and carry on for a overall of six evenings as we fulfill from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday evenings at the OSU Extension office on 15th Avenue.
This 12 months, we started our Seed to Supper Farm, which serves as a area to not only teach Learn Gardeners about developing fruits, herbs, and vegetables, but this year’s Urban Gardener courses will involve a subject excursion to the Farm for some palms-on discovering about rising greens. One more driving objective for our new Seed to Supper Farm is to donate the make grown on this farm to groups in Tulsa that distribute food stuff to people in require. In this feeling, it results in being a real Seed to Supper Farm. We are incredibly excited about the alternatives.
