Looking for ways to beef up your landscape, but are on a shoestring budget? “Sowing Seeds for Economical Color” is next in the workshop series “1st Tuesday in the Garden”, sponsored by Smith County Master Gardeners, and held in their IDEA Demonstration Garden, located in the southeast corner of the Tyler Rose Garden.This free program, held over the noon hour, will give you ideas for making your landscape a showplace without breaking the budget.
As an example, see the Cole Garden in the previous post, featured home on the Home Garden Tour. Even though it is relatively new, the owner effectively uses plants grown from seed to give it a very full, established and overflowing look.
Bring a lawnchair as seating is somewhat limited. You can park on the south side of Rose Garden and enter in through the gate on the southeast corner.
This is also a great time to visit the Tyler Rose Garden – it is busting out in color. Roses are the stars, and are as showy ever. The Heritage Rose Garden in the southwest corner is an inspiring mix of heritage roses mixed with perennials and annuals in a landscape setting. The Shade Garden is full of ideas for bringing interest to the those darker spots in the yard. And the IDEA Garden is exploding with color, and is inspiring to visit, no matter what season of the year.
