Master Gardener to explain hybridization
Monday, June 3, 2013 7:52 AM
The Huntington County Master Gardeners will sponsor a program on hybridizing on Thursday, June 6, at 7 p.m. in Heritage Hall, Hier's Park, Huntington.
Master Gardener Betty Wallace will discuss hybridizing for the hobbyist, explaining how new varieties of plants can be created from established plants.
She will use daylilies, iris and hibiscus as examples.
Focusing on tomatoes, she will provide examples and definitions of hybrids, heirlooms, F1s and open pollination, so that gardeners can interpret the label when buying plants.
Those planning to attend are asked to contact the local Purdue Extension office at 358-4826.
The topic of the Aug. 3 Master Gardeners program will be "Make Your Own Trough."
