Growing Avocados

Even though it’s still winter, now is the time to starting planning for the 2020 gardening growing season. Galveston County Master Gardeners will provide several gardening seminars during January including “Growing Avocados” on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2020.

It’s a new gardening year and hopefully all your gardening efforts will be fruitful and enjoyable.

Temperatures over the winter season thus far have varied remarkably. It was amazing to have to turn on the air conditioner and then turn on the heating unit on the same day.
