2022 ~ Welcome to ROCKMGA

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

June is a month of changes for gardeners in North Central Texas. The weather gets hotter and only certain colorful annuals will survive the Texas summer heat. Before you decide that you’ve killed your plant, learn about cool season annuals vs. warm season annuals. Go to the PLANT SELECTION section and check out the “Favorite Annuals” pages for tried-and-true favorites of Rockwall County Master Gardeners.

Are you interested in becoming a Rockwall County Master Gardener? A training course will be offered from August to November. Complete details and an application are available in the ABOUT US section. The deadline for applications is June 24.

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 June 11 and 25. 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.
