Welcome to ROCKMGA

Volunteers at work.

Master Gardeners dividing daisies at the Discovery Garden.

March is a busy month for gardeners.

Your gardening plans have been made and your tools are cleaned and sharpened.  We are grateful for the recent rain showers and soon the soil will be warm enough to start planting.  The pleasant days enable us to clean up winter debris and prepare beds for new plants.  Always be aware of our average last frost date of March 17.   March is also a month where our lawns need seasonal attention. Go to the new Lawn Care section of ROCKMGA.  

If you are new to gardening, a good place to start is The Basics section of  ROCKMGA.  

Also, for answers to your gardening questions, Master Gardeners are now 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 can not 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 can not answer your questions on the spot, they will continue to research or will consult with a specialist that has expertise in the subject matter.

If you would like to be added to our email mailing list, please send your name and email address to: rockwallmg@ag.tamu.edu.
