What’s Cookin’ and Good Lookin’ In the Kitchen Garden, Mid-Season
July 9 @ 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 Kitchen Garden’s designer and tender, will share her favorite 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.
As warm temperatures and longer days drive an abundance of growth, we’ll focus on how to grow warm-season greens, herbs, flowers, and vegetables. Diane will elaborate on practices such as weeding, successional cropping, and harvesting, all while highlighting her favorites, alliums and basil.
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.
