Jerry Kluver, host of "Get Growing," will offer tips for choosing the right plants for gardening and landscaping projects Saturday, May 18. The program, as well as two others, are offered through a partnership between Rock & Renew and ISU Extension.

Rock & Renew and Iowa State University Extension will be hosting a series of do-it-yourself workshops this Saturday and next Saturday. The programs will be focused on how to garden and landscape like the pros.

The series consists of three sessions. The first, slated for 10 a.m. to noon this Saturday, May 11, will focus on hardscape. The second, which will take place 9 to 11 a.m. next Saturday, May 18, will focus on raised gardens.

Both sessions will provide how-to instruction, as well as tips on selection and products to enhance a property’s curb appeal. In the 1 to 2:30 p.m. session next Saturday, “Get Growing” host Jerry Kluver will present a session on landscaping and plant selection.

Participants will also receive special offers for products demonstrated during the sessions. Space is limited for the program. For more information, or to register, visit online, or call (641) 792-6432.
