Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening with Matt Mattus

Past Event

Join Matt Mattus, author of the new book ‘Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening’ and Principal Horticulturist for Landscape Collaborative – as he takes us on journey through the ever-evolving world of vegetable gardening, touching on the fascinating but often unknown history of some vegetable to learning about the latest cultural methods and tips so that you can improve what you get out of your vegetable garden. A life-long gardener, Matt sifts through all the hype and separates myths from facts leaving the final decision up to you. Do eggshells really work? Is it worth making your own fertilizer? What can you do if your carrots split or your fennel just blooms and then goes to seed along with your parsley? Matt offers answers to these problems and more. If you read Matt’s blog or books, you know what you’re in for – stunning photography, interesting stories and a fun journey through the competitive sport of raising great vegetables at home.
