What’s Growing In My Garden?

“What’s Growing In My Garden?” – June 2nd


Have you always wanted to know what that plant is that appears in your garden, flower bed, or landscape? Is it a flower or weed? Invasive or native? Medicinal, edible or toxic? Here’s your opportunity to find out. On Friday, June 2nd, from 4 pm to 6 pm, local experts experienced in plant identification, will be at the Reed City Depot (200 N. Chestnut) to identify those annoying or mystery plants that you’ve been wondering about. So bring a sample or photo to let our local experts assist in identification. Our plant experts include: a botanist with  the US Forest Service, coordinator of the North Country Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA), retired FSU botany professor, and Master Gardener/Master Naturalist. Don’t miss this opportunity!


The Osceola-Lake and Mecosta Conservation Districts will also be holding their annual native plant sale at the same time. Extra plants will be available for sale if you did not place an order.


For more information contact the Osceola-Lake CD at (231) 832-2950 Ext. 5 or Mecosta CD at (231) 796-0909 Ext. 3.
