ORNAMENTAL & PERENNIAL PLANT PREVIEW & SALE

This is one of my favorite times of year. There are a few breaks in summer temperatures, a little rain once in awhile AND the annual Ornamental and Perennial Preview and Plant Sale. Last fall was kind of a crap shoot given the lack of rain and relentless heat. But this fall is a different story and may be one of the best in a long time to get new plants established in the landscape.

The Preview and Sale are sponsored by the Galveston County Master Gardeners. Dr. J and his army of MG'ers will be on hand to make this a spectacular event. BUT be sure to get there early because it is generally a quick sell out!!! They often publish a list of the available plants and I suggest you check the website/list BEFORE entering the shopping area http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/galveston/educ_programs/index.htm
