Galveston County Master Gardeners' 2019 Fall Plant Sale

The Galveston County Master Gardeners' 2019 Fall Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, Oct. 12, at the Galveston County Fairgrounds located off Highway 6 in Hitchcock. More than 100 Master Gardeners will be on-hand to assist customers with questions and purchases.

Tropical Storm Imelda delivered an abundance of rainfall during mid-September. While mid-September is the peak season for hurricanes, we should be mindful that the official hurricane season extends to Nov. 1.

October has arrived, and most gardeners have been anticipating the arrival of the first “genuine” cool front. With all due respect to the science of meteorology, my definition of a cool front in the fall is one that gets your attention by immediately uplifting your spirit when you first walk outside in the morning!
