Harris County Master Gardeners - Container Gardening Program May 13th at 10:30am

Container gardens are the perfect way to liven up your front entrance, create a small herb garden or soften the look of your deck, porch or patio. They can provide instant color in drab areas, and you can create your own mini-garden in an hour or less. Best of all, they’re easy to care for and maintain. Harris County Master Gardener Kathy Keeney will  present a program focused on Container Gardening.  The Harris County Master Gardeners are a volunteer arm of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. If you have questions, please call 281-890-2665 and a staff member will assist you.
