  • Proper Use of Garden Pesticides
    The warm, humid days of summer have finally arrived, and with them come a variety of insects that threaten our gardens.
  • Annual Tour of Gardens
    With summer in full swing, it’s time to slow down and enjoy the beautiful season Alexandria has to offer. On Sunday, July 12, from 11:00 AM-5:00 PM, the Douglas County Master Gardeners present their annual Tour of Gardens. The Tour of Gardens is a great opportunity to see a diverse variety of horticultural masterpieces right here in Douglas County. Five local gardens are included in this year’s tour, each with its own individual style and theme.
  • What’s Attacking the Baptisia?
    Walking through my garden last night, I was dismayed to find that my Baptisia plants were holey and almost denuded of leaves. The culprit? Blister Beetles!
