Free Gardening Seminar – The Selection, Planting and Care of your Trees

September 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm - free with park admission fee

Get ready for tree planting season! There are many types of trees that will thrive in Central Texas. Matching a tree’s characteristics and growing requirements with your personal preferences is the first step to successfully adding or replacing trees that will increase the value of your property and bring you enjoyment for many years.

Please join Travis County Master Gardener Jerry Naiser as he takes you through the steps of selecting, planting and caring for your trees. Planting the tree in the right season, ideally between October and April here in Central Texas, allows the tree’s roots to grow and get established before the heat of the summer is upon us.  Providing care immediately upon planting and regular preventive maintenance ensures the tree’s successful development and growth.

Sponsored by Travis County Master Gardeners Association, the seminar does not require registration and is free and open to the public.   A park entrance fee is required.

The Austin Area Garden Center in Zilker Botanical Garden is located at 2220 Barton Springs Rd., Austin 78746.  The fees are $2 per adult, $1 per child (ages 3-12) or seniors (age 62 & over), and $3 for non-Austin Residents. Cash or check accepted.
