Adult working in garden - by pexels-binyamin-mellish-169523

Get your garden ready for spring and summer with help from the Tarrant County Master Gardener Association! Each class is free to attend and will take place at the NRH Library on Wednesdays at 5:30 PM. No registration is required.

November 9 | Dirty Work 
Soils and Site Preparation- Gardening advice often focuses on design and plant choice, but site choice, site preparation, and landscape maintenance are also important factors in creating a thriving landscape. Learn how to test your soil, choose the right native plants for the site, prepare the site before installation, and maintain your landscape to keep it thriving.

December 7 | Vegetable Gardening
Growing food at home can be a rewarding experience. Well-designed vegetable gardens can be both efficient and productive. Learn about the best vegetable varieties to grow in North Texas, site preparation, planting times, common pests, and harvesting. 

January 11 | Gardening for Pollinators
Add movement and life to your landscape by attracting butterflies and bees to your garden and create a habitat for local pollinators. Learn how to design a landscape for pollinators, needs of common local pollinators, site selection, and the correct plants to plant.

February 8 | Tough Plants for North Texas
In North Texas it is important to choose hearty plants for a healthy landscape. Plants native to Texas or adapted to dry conditions thrive in our climate. Learn about the best native and adapted plants for North Texas landscapes, garden design, and maintenance. 

If you have any questions about these events, please give us a call at 817-427-6800.


About the Tarrant County Master Gardener Association
Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers, and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and to help others, and can communicate with diverse groups of people. What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for this training, persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their Texas AgriLife Extension Service office to provide horticultural related information to their communities.
