One of the beautiful sights on the Fall Tour of Gardens – Saturday, November 4, 2017.

SAVE THE DATE!  We are pleased to announce that the Master Gardeners will be hosting a Fall Tour of Gardens in 2017.  Mark Saturday, November 4 on your calendar and check back monthly to ROCKMGA for new details and photographs of the gardens.  The theme is Landscape Solutions and garden visitors will learn many new ideas to solve many home landscaping challenges. 

 

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.

Also, Master Gardeners will be set up on certain days during the summer at the Farmers Market in Rockwall.   Go to Farmers Market in the EVENTS section and make a note of when volunteers will be available to answer questions.
