Master Gardener shares experience

By Denise Stewart

Master Gardener Dawn Stanke hosted the Scripps-Mesa Garden Club for a tour of her garden for the May meeting. She shared her knowledge and experience in growing citrus and other fruits and vegetables as the group visited various areas of her yard.

The Scripps-Mesa Garden Club meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month. During the growing season, most meetings are at outdoor venues and focus on techniques that are successful in our climate and soil conditions. During the cooler months, meetings are at the Scripps Miramar Ranch Library Community Room featuring programs that support gardeners’ interests.
