Hanover Garden Club: Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening

Learn more about gardening and the landscape of the Upper Valley at this monthly series, featuring a new topic each month.

Matt Mattus takes us on a journey through the ever-evolving world of vegetable gardening, touching on the fascinating but often unknown history of some vegetables, 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.

Matt Mattus’s career in horticulture began when he was 10 years old and started to exhibit marigolds in plant society shows. He currently sits on the board of the Tower Hill Botanic Garden, serves as vice president of the Worcester County Horticultural Society, and is the past president of the North American Rock Garden Society. He’s the author of Mastering the Art of Flower Gardening and Mastering the Art of Vegetable Gardening from Cool Springs Press.

Matt will be presenting via Zoom. Participants can attend at the Montshire or via Zoom.
