The Lebanon County Master Gardeners will present a $5 class this month on making the most of the winter months when it comes to getting your garden ready for next spring.

The class, “Gardening Through Winter and Cold Stratification,” will be held on Monday, Sept. 26, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Penn State Extension’s Lebanon County offices, 2120 Cornwall Road.

“In Pennsylvania, gardeners typically think of the winter as downtime from the garden,” said organizers in a press release. “During ‘Gardening Through Winter and Cold Stratification,’ gardeners will learn how they can grow and prepare plants through winter to have an even more bountiful spring.”

During the class, students will learn about cold stratification, how to sow seeds during winter, and how to utilize milk jugs for gardening through winter.

To register for the event, call Penn State Extension Registration Support at 877-345-0691.
