What’s Cookin’ and Good Lookin’ In the Kitchen Garden, Late Season
September 3 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Witness the seasonal evolution of the Burpee Kitchen Garden. Filled with edibles and floral accents, the garden’s wares range from arugula to zinnia, itty-bitty seedlings to 12-foot stalks. Diane Walden, the Burpee Garden’s designer and tender, will share her favorite late-season garden occupants. In this unconventional kitchen/cutting garden, you’ll discover new and unusual selections as well as the classics, whether planted in-ground or in containers, vertically trained with tuteurs.
This late-season session will showcase eggplant, tomato, sunflowers, and dahlias and share leek, ornamental corn, and herb-harvesting knowhow. File away seed-harvesting tips for next year’s garden, and learn how to establish late-season crops like kale and radishes.
To provide safe, in-person classes at the Gardens, classes are held entirely outdoors and have been reduced to 12 students. We are practicing Maine CDC social-distancing protocols.
Rain date: Saturday, September 4, 2021, 2:00-4:00 p.m.
