MSU Urban IPM Alerts
|New and Updated Yard & Garden MontGuides (Horticulture/Urban IPM)
MSU Extension has just released three timely MontGuides to help gardeners, both new and experienced, to extend their vegetable growing season, plan, plant, and maintain vegetable gardens, and then save seeds for next year’s garden.
For those looking for a home project to help extend their growing season for early planting, Hotbeds, Cold Frames, and Low Tunnels for Montana Gardeners - MT199803AG explains how this can be done. With this revision of the previous MontGuide, low tunnel construction has been added.
The all-new Successful Home Vegetable Gardening in Montana has been expanded. In addition to sections on planting, planning, and maintaining gardens, sections on disease and insect pest management have been added.
For those gardeners who would like to save their own seeds for next year’s garden, Harvesting and Saving Garden Seeds has been updated. Many seed companies had to stop selling vegetable seeds to home gardeners this year and only supplied professional growers. Saving your own seeds can help in food security, and also tailoring your garden to your specific conditions.
