Garden Great in Zone 8!

Look Sharp!

on January 9, 2013

Gardeners get more done in less time with clean, sharp gardening tools.  January is a great time to sharpen your tools.  January is also a good time to drain and replace the oil in your lawnmower and have the blade sharpened or replaced.

If you live in the Columbus area, there is a hands-on workshop this weekend that you may want to attend.  Master gardener Bill Kes will show you how to sharpen your pruning tools.  In just an hour or so, you can learn from Bill and get your hand pruners or lopping shears sharpened!

When: Saturday, January 12, 2013
Morning Session: 10:00, Afternoon Session: 2:00
Where: Columbus Botanical Garden, 3603 Weems Road
Cost: $15 for members, $20 for non-members
Space is limited, so register now.
Visit to register and to get more information.

Later this month, on January 26, Bill will be back at the Columbus Botanical Garden to conduct a workshop on sharpening digging tools, such as shovels, hoes, and hand spades.  For more information, visit
