SJC Master Gardeners will be at Livingston Trade Days on Oct. 16 for a fall propagation plant from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Members from Polk and San Jacinto counties have been propagating their own garden favorites throughout the spring and summer so buyers can choose from perennial, pollinator, succulent, and hopefully, herb and winter veggies.
Long-time SJC Master Gardener Shirley Baker conducted a survey of plants that best survived our frozen week in February to provide suggestion for the plants best suited to our unpredictable weather. Many of the plants available are proven survivors of extreme Zone 8 weather.
Most plants will be half-gallon size, ready for planting in the ground or larger containers. Some of the hundreds of plants available include bromeliad, white/yellow plumerias, amaryllis and giant crinium bulbs, sweet almond verbenas, multiple salvias and sages, passion vines, vitex trees, blackberries, redbud trees, copper canyon daisies, spider lilies, John Fanick phlox, and Peggy Martin roses, and more.
Members of SJCMG will be available to answer questions, help identify plants for your landscape and garden renovation projects and to make your selections.
SJCMG will be in Building A, Booths 20-22, Livingston Trade Days, at Joe Pedigo Park, 925 U.S. Highway 59, in Livingston.
Check the SJC Master Gardeners’ website, www.txmg.org/sjmg, and https://www.facebook.com/SJC-Master-Gardeners for complete lists of plants and trees that will be available. Come early and bring wagons.
