Fall is a great time to take care of tasks in the garden to prepare for winter.
Allison Watkins, AgriLife Extension Horticulturist, will be talking about what you can do to prepare for garden and landscape for cold weather. She will cover tree care, planting bulbs, fall vegetables, and soil management including composting.

She will also talk about plants that will go right into winter to add color to your landscape and garden. The class is Friday, Oct 17 from noon to 1 p.m. Bring your questions about your landscape challenges, too. The class will be held in the Commissioners’ Court on the second floor of the Ed B. Keys building, 113 W. Beauregard.

Cost is only $5 per class. Bring your lunch. The proceeds from the classes will go to The People/Plant Connection to start building the Children’s Adventure Garden in Padron Park.

If you would like more information about The People/Plant Connection, call 325-656-3104. For questions about the classes call Allison Watkins at the County Extension office, 325-659-6528.
