Hays Horticulture Evening Event on Aug. 30 to Move Indoors

HAYS, Kan. – Kansas State University’s Agriculture Research Center at Hays will host its 2012 Evening Horticulture Event on Thursday, Aug. 30. A change this year is that the whole event will be held in the research center’s air-conditioned auditorium due to this summer’s hot, dry weather. The center is located at 1232 240th Ave. in Hays.

Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the auditorium. The program will run from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Presentation topics will include:

·        Prairie Star annual flower trials;

·        Turfgrass issues;

·        Tomato and pepper performance trials; and

·        Insect issues – lawn and garden.

A garden photography exhibit is included and K-State Research and Extension specialists will be on hand to discuss horticulture topics on an informal basis.
