Outerbanks-VideoCheck out this outstanding new video by Extension Master Gardener Volunteers in Dare County! Kudos to Shannon Brooks and her whole team, especially EMGV Barbara Koeblin, the media talent for this 23 minute episode of Extension Master Gardener Series 101 – Gardening on the Outer Banks which includes an explanation of the 4 zones (Oceanfront, Dune, Maritime Forest, and Marsh); recommended plant varieties for each zone; special conditions (salt, wind, sandy soil, heat) and how to protect plants; the value of native plants, planting dates, and managing water in the landscape.
