2022 ~ Welcome to ROCKMGA

Textures and shades of green are highlights of this shade garden.

May is a great month to enjoy the gardens in North Central Texas. Walk your neighborhood or take a drive and slow down in front of the homes where the landscape is on display. Appreciate the bright added colors and shapes from annuals, roses, and shrubs. See what plants are thriving in shade gardens. Stop by one of our local garden centers and learn of new varieties on the market.

The Rockwall Farmers Market will be open every Saturday beginning May 7, on the downtown square from 8:00 until noon. Master Gardeners will set up an information booth at the Farmers Market on May 14 and 28. 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.
