Nursery update June 28 in Saginaw, Mich.
MSU Extension is offering an update on current issues facing nursery growers in Michigan.
Join us for an informative afternoon (1 to 4:30 p.m.) on June 28 at Kluck’s Nursery in Saginaw, Mich. The program will feature a discussion of current issues facing nursery growers such as:
- New, exotic nursery and landscape pests – Dave Smitley, MSU Department of Entomology
- What’s happening to spruce? – Dennis Fulbright, MSU Department of Plant Pathology
- Conifer landscape options – Bert Cregg, MSU Department of Horticulture and MSU Department of Forestry
- Boxwood blight – Jill O’Donnell, MSU Extension
- And more!
We will also be touring Kluck’s Nursery. They offer over 500 varieties of shade trees, ornamental trees, shrubs, evergreens and perennials, including a large supply of specialty evergreens and topiaries. Over 70 percent of these plants are grown on their 350-acre nursery.
The cost for the program is $10. We are applying for pesticide recertification credits.
