It’s not too early to think of Spring landscaping, tree planting and garden varieties for the area.
Galveston County Master Gardeners will host their huge Spring Plant Sale, Seminar and Craft Sale Saturday, Feb. 15 at the Galveston County Fairgrounds at Jack Brooks Park on Hwy. 6 in Hitchcock.
An educational seminar showing what plants are being offered at the sale is given in the Youth Building at 8 am. The plant sale will begin at 9 am and run through 1 pm in the Rodeo Arena.
Thousands of plants from Texas Tough perennials to bulbs and succulents, citrus to herbs, landscape trees to shrubs, fruit trees and vegetable transplants to ornamental and tropicals will be offered. The seminar not only shows the plants but also offers valuable information for the buyers.
Garden art will also be available for sale.
The sale will be staffed by Master Gardeners to answer any questions buyers might have regarding the plants.
Also for sale are several books/booklets written by County Master Gardeners. These affordable publications are full of information on such items as herb gardens, tropicals, butterfly gardens and more.
The Bluebonnet Antique Tractor Club will have antique tractors on display at the sale.
