Carter County Master Gardeners met Jan. 12 at the Garden Center in Ard­more. The 15 members and four guests who were present had a busy evening filling seed packets with seeds to be given away at the Spring Garden Show.

The third annual garden show will be March 6 at the Ardmore Convention Cen­ter. Betty Sue Tow, president of the Master Gardeners, presented a program about things that can be done in January to get ready for the spring gardening season.

The February meeting of CCMG will include a hands­on, seed-planting workshop with seeds members will take home to use in their gardens. Several Master Garden­ers will assist with the Mas­ter Gardener classes at the Southern Oklahoma Tech­nology Center by introduc­ing visiting professors from Oklahoma State University who will teach horticulture classes in their field of exper­tise.

CCMG will also teach classes, including one on soil and composting and one on OK Proven Plants. The classes will be Feb. 1 through March 29, and will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. each Monday and Thursday. Enrollment is being taken now at SOTC.

All guests are welcome to attend CCMG meetings at 6:30 p.m. on the second Tues­day of each month in the Ar­dmore Garden Center.
