To Spray or Not to Spray

Master Gardeners Lucy Huggins and Jim Garman will be giving a free presentation on the use of herbicides and pesticides at Paradise Valley Park (Prospect and Paradise avenues, Middletown) on Saturday, July 12 at 10:30 a.m. Herbicides and pesticides can be safely used in the garden or lawn at times, but there are many occasions when their use is unnecessary. There are many substitutions available. Come and hear about the use of the chemicals and get information about effective alternatives.

Soil samples will also be tested. Dig a one-half cup sample from 3-4” deep; let it dry overnight on newspaper and bring samples in a marked plastic bag.
