Virtual Gardening
Forcing Bulbs

Adults Registration

It's time to think spring and spring flowers! Join us for a free virtual class with Extension Marathon County.

Fall is the time when many gardeners are purchasing and planting spring flowering bulbs for early season color. You can enjoy tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and crocus indoors as a winter flowering treat if you take steps now to prepare the bulbs. We'll cover bulb selection, planting, cold treatment, and growing.

This free, interactive class will be led by Janell Wehr, Extension Marathon County's horticulture educator, and held on the web-based meeting platform Zoom. Registration is required - click here to sign up - and you can email janell.wehr@wisc.edu with any questions.

Can't attend this class? You can register here for a "Forcing Bulbs" class on Oct. 12 from 2-3 p.m., or register here for an evening class at 6-7 p.m., also on Oct. 12.
