‘How to (Not) Kill Your Tree’ And Other Free Gardening Webinars

University of Illinois Extension’s Four Seasons Gardening Program will offer a winter webinar series for gardening enthusiasts beginning in February. The Four Seasons Gardening Program focuses on environmental stewardship, home gardening, and backyard food production.

This winter, gardeners who are itching for something “green” to do indoors will learn about caring for landscape trees, building terrariums, and living with poisonous and irritating plants. The three webinars will be presented live on the dates listed below.

  • “How to Kill Your Tree: A Guide of What NOT to Do” with Chris Enroth, U of I Extension horticulture educator, on Feb. 23 at 1:30 p.m. or Feb. 25 at 6:30 p.m.
  • “Unique Terrariums for Indoor Spaces” with Candice Miller, U of I Extension horticulture educator, on March 8 at 1:30 p.m. or March 10 at 6:30 p.m.
  • “Naughty, Nasty, and Simply Annoying Plants” with Rhonda Ferree, U of I Extension horticulture educator, on March 22 at 1:30 p.m. or March 24 at 6:30 p.m.

All webinar sessions are free and open to the public to view online, but participants must register in advance.

Participants may choose to view the Feb. 23 and March 22 webinars at the U of I Extension office in St. Charles. There is a fee of $5 to join in person, that includes the session handouts, and local registration closes one week before each program.
