Extension offers garden trough lessons

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rensselaer County will present the program “English Garden Troughs” on Thursday, July 21, from 7 to 8 p.m. Stone sinks and troughs make great containers for alpine plants, succulents and other small treasures.

This program will demonstrate how you can create easy-to-make “hypertufa” or English troughs at home using commonly found materials. Presenter David Chinery is the horticulture educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Rensselaer County.

This program is free to the public and will be held outdoors at the Demonstration Garden at the Robert C. Parker School, 4254 Route 43, North Greenbush. Rain or inclement weather at the start of the program may result in cancellation. Limited seating provided; bring your own lawn chair. For more information, contact Cornell Cooperative Extension at 272-4210 or dhc3@cornell.edu/.
