Free Gardening Seminar – The Selection, Planting and Care of your Trees
September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Hosted by the Travis County Master Gardener Association –
Get ready for tree planting season! There are many types of trees, such as ornamental or fruit trees, understory or large shade trees, deciduous or evergreen trees, that will thrive in Central Texas. Matching a tree’s characteristics and growing requirements with your personal preferences is the first step to successfully adding or replacing trees that will increase the value of your property and bring you enjoyment for many years.
Please join Master Gardener Jerry Naiser as he takes you through the steps of selecting, planting and caring for your trees. Planting the tree in the right season, ideally between October and April here in Central Texas, allows the tree’s roots to grow and get established before the heat of the summer is upon us.
