Northern high bush blueberries, which do best in this area, flourish in June.
A free gardening workshop, “Berries and Brambles” will take place Saturday, June 23, at historic Marshall Schoolhouse 18 east of Marshall.

The seminar will start at 1 p.m. in the schoolhouse demonstration gardens at 7592 John Marshall Highway.
Master Gardener Tom Baughn will discuss the ins and outs of berry production for the home gardener, including how to maintain plants, tips for success and recommended cultivars.
The “Berries and Brambles” presentation is part of the Fauquier and Rappahannock Master Gardeners’ “Saturday Afternoons in the Garden” program, a series of horticultural classes held from spring to fall each year.  Taught by horticultural experts and seasoned Master Gardeners, the workshops cover a broad range of topics – from gardening techniques and tips, to advances in environmental and conservation issues.  Virginia Cooperative Extension helps with the series that provides local gardeners with innovative gardening techniques and best practices that they can put to use in their own home gardens.
The June 23 program will last 60 minutes, followed by a short question and answer period. Participants should dress for the weather as the workshop will take place outdoors, rain or shine. Some seats will be provided but attendees may choose to bring their own lawn chairs.
