Irrigation the topic of June 24 workshop

Citrus County Florida-Friendly Landscaping is offering a free gardening workshop from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 24. Irrigation scheduling and management are essential to successful and sustainable gardens. Providing the plants with the water they require and efficient application of this resource is the topic of the day. 

Evaluation and repair of your irrigation system prior to the summer heat is a great idea. This evaluation should include: planning water-reducing retrofits, regular monitoring and catch-can testing to calibrate the system. 

The class will be at the Citrus County Extension Service building, 3650 W. Sovereign Path, Lecanto. 

Call Steven Davis at 352-527-5708 to confirm participation.
