It’s fall in the Santa Clarita Valley. Leaves are falling and the temperature is dropping, but your landscape can still thrive with proper care. SCV Water is serving up two free November gardening classes that will help you ensure the health of your landscape through fall and into the winter.
You’ve selected and installed plants new in your landscape, but how do you care for them? Join us on Thursday, Nov. 14, from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. for Caring for the Top 30 Plants for the SCV. Participants will learn maintenance techniques of the top 30 plants for the SCV (and others) so that they’ll thrive in the SCV climate. This class is a follow-up to the Top 30 Plants for the SCV, but can also be attended on its own.
The health of your plants depend on the soil they’re planted in and the fertilizer you use to help them grow. To improve your “green thumb” potential, come learn how to Manage Soils and Fertilizers in the SCV on Saturday, Nov. 16, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., you’ll learn which soil is most common in the SCV (and most likely in your yard), and the best fertilizers for your landscape.
All classes are held at SCV Water, 27234 Bouquet Canyon Road, Santa Clarita.
