(ROCKWALL, TX – Oct 6, 2015) Now that the night temperatures have cooled down you can think about replacing tired summer plants with fresh, colorful flowers for bright autumn color. The Rockwall County Master Gardeners will be conducting their Fall Plant Sale and will offer you a variety of our favorites fresh from the greenhouse.
Plants will include pansies, violas, ornamental kale and cabbage, snapdragons, perennials and much more. Master Gardeners will also be available to talk to you about why we think October is our favorite month to plant and prepare beds.
Fall Plant Sale
Saturday, October 10, 2015
9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.
County Courthouse by the Library
Be sure and bring your wagon or cart to load up on these healthy plants. Bring cash or your checkbook – no credit cards will be accepted. There will be no sales tax charged and the prices will be competitive with other local businesses. Best of all, your purchase will help support educational outreach programs offered by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service through the Rockwall County Master Gardener Association.
A special feature of the Plant Sale will once again be the Schubertii Allium bulbs that will be available for you to purchase at a low price. The Schubertii Allium is a showstopper in the garden and blooms during the spring months. The bulbs need to be planted from mid-October to mid-November and a grouping of 3 to 5 alliums is recommended. These unique flowers also dry nicely for indoor decorations.
Another special feature of this event will be the opportunity to view the nationally recognized Dwarf Rose Trial Beds and the Warm Season Annuals Trial Beds located between the County Courthouse and Library. Master Gardeners will be able to explain the process of conducting test trials on the assortment of dwarf roses and annuals.
