Make plans now to attend the annual Fall Garden Conference and Bulb Sale, sponsored by Smith County Master Gardeners, a volunteer support group of Texas AgriLife Extension Service. It is this Saturday, October 8, at Harvey Convention Center, 2000 W. Front St. in Tyler. This free event begins with 2 talks, starting at 9:00 a.m. The featured speaker is Dallas County Master Gardener Diana Harris, also a Certified Landscape Professional, who will speak on gardening in the shade. Local Master Gardener Merlin Eck will give a rapid fire overview of hardy bulbs, most of which will be available at the bulb sale which follows the Conference.
Sale begins at 11:30 and ends at 1:30 p.m., at the same location. Many bulbs will be available only in limited quantities. For a listing of bulbs for sale, go to the Smith County Master Gardener web site – scmg.tamu.edu
