Master Gardener Green Thumb Garden Tip Series: Companion Planting
June 27 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Pam Larsen, organic gardener, will talk about Companion Planting.
Pam Larsen will explain how interplanting crops, proper nutrition and watering can provide plants with their own personal defense against pests and lure beneficials on Thursday, June 27, at noon in the County Commissioners meeting room at the Clallam County Courthouse in Port Angeles.
This presentation is part of the “Green Thumb Garden Tips” brown bag series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners.
Larsen will describe the concept of how some plants repel or at least confuse pests while others attract pollinating insects or attack the bad bugs. Some plants enhance the growing conditions of their companion by supplying additional nutrients to the soil or providing them with shade.
Larsen’s presentation will focus on vegetable gardening, but she will also discuss interplanting flowering ornamentals to attract pollinators.
A long-time organic gardener, Larsen has taught organic gardening classes for The Community Gardens of Sequim and for the general public for 10 years.
The Master Gardener Brown Bag series continues on the second and fourth Thursday of each month. Presentations occur from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. For questions, call 360-565-2679.
