A class on growing healthy houseplants

LIBERTY, NY — Keeping houseplants is an ideal way to create an attractive and restful setting in a home or office and help purify the air. A class on growing healthy houseplants will be offered on Thursday, February 27, by the Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) Sullivan County’s Master Gardener Program. This event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Gerald J. Skoda Extension Education Center.

Anyone can achieve a “green thumb” with the proper education. This class instruction will cover the light, temperature, humidity, water, nutrition, and soil requirements of houseplants. Common pests and their management will also be discussed.

All class materials are covered with a fee of $10. Class size is limited, so pre-registration with non-refundable payment is required in advance. For registration or more information call 845/292-6180 or email smd243@cornell.edu.
