The University of Delaware New Castle County Cooperative Extension will hold a home-gardening workshop titled “Annuals Around the House” from 7 to 9 p.m. May 11 at the NCC Cooperative Extension office, 461 Wyoming Road, Newark.

Start annuals from seed or buy inexpensive flats from a local garden center. Unlike the shortened bloom of perennials, annual plants will bloom longer and don’t require a lot of work. The instructor will be Frank Ebright. Cost is $15.
