Beautiful Garden, Little Water

In Houston, we understand hot and dry.  Since this drought began, it seems the weather is always hot and dry.  We've learned to live with it, but what about our lawns?  Harris County Master Gardeners has a solution for that!  Join us this Saturday for our Green Thumb Gardening Series as we discuss water star gardens.  Learn which plants conserve water and how to water for maximum benefit.  Lets keep our lawns and gardens green throughout the hot month of August and longer as we head into the fall.
