What Went Wrong in Your Vegetable Garden? (and How to Fix It)

Join UC Master Gardener Terry Lippert as she covers common vegetable growing problems and how to correct them. You will learn what causes tomatoes to crack, why zucchinis sometimes shrivel and die, and why broccoli and cauliflower sometimes produce only tiny heads. Learn why onions often produce flowers and fail to develop good bulbs. You’ll hear about solutions to these and other vegetable crop problems and also receive suggestions for what vegetables to plant for the most reliably good results.


About Our Garden

Our Garden is a public demonstration garden of the UC Master Gardener Program of Contra Costa County, located in Walnut Creek at the corner of North Wiget Lane and Shadelands Drive, just north of Ygnacio Valley Road. From April through October, weekly speakers present a variety of information on edibles gardening and home gardening in general.

UC Master Gardeners of Contra Costa maintain the garden and interface with the general public. We encourage you to bring in your home and garden questions and talk with a UC Master Gardener at the Ask a Master Gardener Table (9 am to Noon)!
