Learn the basics of growing herbs in the Austin area. Together we will explore a fascinating group of plants that have been part of mankind’s history for thousands of years.

Master Gardener and past President of the Austin Herb Society, Lucinda Rudin, will cover a comprehensive set of topics, including soil preparation, watering, growing seasons, when to plant, when to harvest and how to preserve and store your herbs.  Additionally, she will provide ideas for growing herbs in a variety of situations, from apartment balconies to raised beds, and even to incorporating them into your landscape.

There will be an opportunity to visit the beautiful Herb Garden at Zilker Botanical Garden at the end of the presentation.

No registration is required.  Attendance to the seminars is free and open to the public. A garden admission fee is required.
