Beginner Gardening Toolkit

If you are new to gardening or consider yourself an expert Post Rock Extension is here to help! We have a variety of resources for every gardener. Below you will find a helpful "toolkit" for all gardeners. When selecting what veggies to plant, check out the Recommended Vegetable Varieties publication. These varieties have been trialed and tested by K-State to do well in Kansas. If you have never grown asparagus but want to give it a try, the Kansas Garden Guide has a section on how to grow many types of vegetables. This guide explains when to plant, how to care for the certain vegetable, and when to harvest. When you have spare time you can watch past K-State Garden Hour Webinars. We have a large library of past webinars on numerous topics. Enjoy gardening this season and remember Post Rock is always here to help!
 
If you have specific questions, reach out to Cassie Homan, Horticulture Agent at choman@ksu.edu or 785-738-3597.
