July 30 | Considerations for Growing with Wood Fiber | Speakers: Jonathan Ebba & Mark Sanford

Potting media are containing more wood fiber due to peat shortages, sustainability issues and more.  While this relatively new component may be more affordable and more sustainable than some of the “old standbys”, growing with it requires different strategies for water and fertility management.  The last couple years have seen an increase in root rots and slow growth due to growers changing their medium without changing their management strategies.  Join Jonathan Ebba from UNH Extension and Mark Sanford from Oldcastle Lawn and Garden for this conversation about using potting mixes with wood fiber.

If you have questions or would like assistance registering for or accessing the webinars, including language access, please contact Jonathan at or (603) 749-2529.
