2022 ~ Welcome to ROCKMGA

Colorful Wave petunias
Wave petunias continue blooming throughout the sizzling summer months.

Yep, it’s July, and it’s hot and dry. And it was hot and dry in June. With August (the really hot and dry month) approaching, gardeners are having to make some hard decisions.

What plants are worth saving and watering? And what plants are too brown and crispy? It’s time to cut back and compost the tired plants. Add the worn-out dirt to the compost as well – don’t try to reuse it. Even Master Gardeners are completing this chore and learning which summer plants can really survive the Texas heat and sun.

The Rockwall Farmers Market will be open every Saturday in the downtown square from 8:00 until noon. Master Gardeners will set up an information booth at the Farmers Market on July 9 and 23. Come by with your questions.

ASK A MASTER GARDENER: Master Gardeners are available on Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office. Stop by 915 Whitmore Dr., Suite B and a Rockwall County Master Gardener will be on hand to research questions and provide gardening information. If you are not able to come by in person, call 972-204-7660 or email rockwallmg@ag.tamu.edu and a Master Gardener will respond to you in a timely manner. If the volunteers cannot answer your questions on the spot, they will continue to research or will consult with a specialist that has expertise in the subject matter.
