Upcoming Events

Front Porch Citrus

More Info >

Plant your own citrus grove right here in North Texas! Homegrown fresh key lime pie, orange marmalade, and ice cold lemonade are just a growing season away. This course will teach you how to grow potted citrus on the front porch or the back patio. If your yard has some sun and just a little bit of room, you can grow these attractive and useful plants. This class takes place at the instructor's home in Fort Worth. All tools and materials are provided.

Spring Bulbs - Begin in the Fall

More Info >

Planting spring bulbs in the fall is as natural as falling leaves and football games. It is an opportunity neglected by the home gardener, if he/she doe not include some of the hardy, easy to grow spring beauties in the garden next fall. Bulbs are truly some of the simplest of flowers to grow, easy to care for and inexpensive. All they ask is a fall planting in 2018 and they will reward the grower with weeks of early spring color, fragrance and beauty. In general, good bulbs produce flowers the first season after planting as the flower buds are already formed when the bulbs are purchased and planted for 2019 spring.

Utilizing Seed by Making Seed Tape

More Info >

One of the great joys of gardening is planting! Well, actually, it can be a bit frustrating especially if you are planting seeds. Seeds are hard to pick up with your fingers, spacing is difficult as the seeds slip from your hands, and trying to keep seeds in a straight row is almost impossible. Forget about the seed packets, we have a better way! We are going to teach you how to save surplus seeds and make your own seed tape for the next planting season.
