Everybody Gardens editor Doug Oster will discuss “The Magic of Fall Planted Bulbs” during an Oct. 1 luncheon at the Greensburg Country Club.

Lunch followed by Oster’s talk will begin at noon, as part of Greensburg Garden Center’s annual meeting.

“We are very happy to have Doug joining us for this talk,” says garden center President Carla Rusnica. “He always has such wonderful gardening information to share.”

Oster shares his gardening passion and expertise online at Everybody Gardens, in a Friday column in the Tribune-Review and in personal appearances. He earned an Outstanding Documentary Emmy for “Gardens of America,” a one-hour special he conceived for Pittsburgh PBS affiliate WQED.

“Gardening is fun,” Oster says. “Enjoy every day spent tending vegetables, flowers, shrubs and trees.”

Copies of Oster’s book, “Steel City Gardens,” will be available to purchase and have signed following the Oct. 1 program at the country club, 309 Pleasant Valley Road, Hempfield..

Attendees also will be able to purchase tickets for the garden center’s fall raffle. Special prize is a one-hour personal garden consultation by Oster paired with a copy of his book.

Lunch and presentation is $30.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
