From the Travis County Master Gardeners Association –
Travis County Master Gardeners Association is sponsoring free gardening seminars on October 6, 2018, on the “The Care of Trees,” and “Adding Roses to your Garden.” The seminars will be held in the North Village Branch Library at 2505 Steck Ave., Austin from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Trees improve our environment, provide shelter from the hot Texas sun and add beauty to our landscapes, so keeping them healthy is extremely important. Travis County Master Gardener Wendy Buck will share tree maintenance procedures, such as mulching, proper pruning, limiting fertilization and supplemental irrigation techniques that will increase your trees’ chance of withstanding our extreme weather swings.
Growing roses in Central Texas is easier than you thought! Today there are many hybrid varieties that need little maintenance and have abundant blooms. Travis County Master Gardener Cher Coleman, who has 30 years of experience working with roses, will teach methods for proper selection of rose varieties, site prep and maintenance like pruning, pest control and fertilization.
The seminar is free and open to the public. No reservations are required.
