Spring has Sprung
Posted on May 6, 2019

It’s exciting times in the gardens right now. The Master Gardeners have been out in the garden already. We had a pruning and clean-up day and we got all the dead stalks that were left behind and we also had a mulching day and mulched the whole garden. It’s fun as we do clean up to see the new little green growth starting to come up. If you haven’t cleaned up your garden it’s not too late.  To read more go to the blog link  https://wcextdemogarden.wordpress.com/

The Future is Now
Posted on July 30, 2018

Hurray – our new demo garden is officially open. Sunday at the 100th Annual Weld County Fair we had a ribbon cutting ceremony to open our new garden.  It’s looking great despite the two hail storms that pummeled it.  A testament to the plants selected for the garden.  Hardy enough to come back and look lovely after a brutal storm.  To read more go to the blog link  https://wcextdemogarden.wordpress.com/

The plants are doing well.  They are getting established and growing new roots and there are lots of blooms already.  We’re excited everything is doing well.  We also got some plant donations from Treasure island, so thanks to them for some Day Lilies.  They were planted with the grasses on the north side of the building.  That’s looking much better now with more plants in it.  We also got some ice plants from Plant Select that were placed amongst the garden.  To read more go to the blog link  https://wcextdemogarden.wordpress.com/

The Weld County Colorado Master Gardeners will be installing a water-wise demonstration garden at the Weld County Extension Office in 2018. The garden will feature plants that look beautiful in the landscape and are well suited for our Colorado Climate.

Thank you to those who have given support to this project, including the Colorado Garden Foundation, the City of Greeley Water and Sewer Department, Island Grove Regional Park, Weld County Government, and CSU Weld County Extension.
