New and veteran gardeners had their questions answered Saturday afternoon…

Wilson’s Garden Center in Licking County is holding its third annual open house this weekend. Saturday featured a workshop on Square Foot Gardening, something that’s growing in popularity.

"It has been going on for a few years, but as more and more people try to grow more of their own produce, it’s an easy, fairly inexpensive way for people to grow everything in their own backyard," said Horticulturist Shelli Berry-McDaniel.

Gardeners received discount prices, free refreshments and door prizes. The most anticipated topic of the open house is vegetable gardening.

"People are really into growing their own food, and that’s getting the right crops planted at the right time. That’s the whole idea of the workshop, is you come in, any questions you have, we’re going to guide you along the way and help you be successful."

The event continues Sudnay at noon.
