FALL HOME & GARDEN EXPO HAPPENS SEPT. 24th, by Larry Williams, UF/IFAS Extension Director, Okaloosa County

The Fall Home and Garden Expo takes place Saturday from 9am to 3pm at the Crestview Community Center, 1446 Commerce Drive in Crestview. The expo is brought to you by the Building Industry Association of Okaloosa & Walton Counties and the Okaloosa County Master Gardeners Association.

The Home & Garden Expo will feature indoor and outdoor exhibits of products and services and educational seminars for the homeowner and gardener. There will be food vendors as well as children’s activities.

Master Gardeners will provide indoor and outdoor education booths as well as landscape seminars.

I will provide a seminar titled “Preparing Your Lawn for Fall and Winter Seminar.” What’s the truth about winterizer fertilizers? Do you need to “winterize” your lawn? How should you water your lawn through the fall and winter? Should you overseed your lawn with annual rye grass? What should you do about winter weeds in your lawn? Learn the answers to these questions and the truth about winter lawn care for North Florida by attending the Preparing Your Lawn for Fall and Winter seminar.

Okaloosa County master Gardeners will be there to help answer your lawn, landscape and garden questions. They will also provide educational seminars during the event.

Tickets for this event will be on sale at all Eglin Federal Credit Union branch locations.  Tickets purchased in advance are $2 or $1 for military personnel.  Children 12 and under get in free.
