Join University of Illinois Extension educator Jennifer Fishburn to kick off the Four Seasons fall webinar series with “Spring Flowering Bulbs” in early September.

“Spring flowering bulbs are a great addition to any garden,” Fishburn said. “They normally start flowering in February with snowdrops and end in June with alliums.”

In this free webinar, participants will learn about selection, planting and care for spring flowering bulbs. It will be presented at 1:30 p.m. Sept. 11 and again at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13.

All Four Seasons webinar sessions can be viewed online for free, but participants must register in advance at go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars. The free webinar program focuses on environmental stewardship, home gardening and backyard food production, with new topics explored each season.
