Illinois Master Gardeners will be on hand in the lobby of the Main Library to answer gardening questions & provide information.

Do you want to know the best time to reseed your lawn? Ask questions about pruning your roses or planting natives? Have you wondered about how to garden organically, compost or grow vegetables? You'll get a chance to ask those questions and more, and get more gardening tips and information from trained Master Gardeners from the University of Illinois Extension of North Suburban Cook County. Master Gardener experts will be on hand in the lobby of the main branch the second and fourth Saturdays of the month through the end of September. [Dates: May 27, June 11 & 24, July 8 & 22, August 12 & 26, September 9 & 23]

No registration is required. Just drop by and our experts will do their best to help you.
