It’s prime time in Texas to prepare to start a fall garden, but common pests and climate-related problems may have you hanging up your gardening gloves for the season.
Don’t fret! Sandy Oaks Olive Orchard and horticulturist Robbi Will come to the rescue with information on how to deal with these challenges and much more, this Saturday, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
Will is going to lead a discussion on growing a Texas-style Mediterranean garden and will provide tips and tricks on how to successfully grow and harvest fall herbs and vegetables from your own space.
Also at the demo, Sandy Oaks’ Executive Chef Chris Cook will present a cooking demo with fall herbs and vegetables discussed in the seminar, fresh-picked from the Sandy Oaks garden.
If you’re still unsure if you’re ready to absorb all of this information and venture out on your own, don’t worry; herbs will also be available for purchase in the Sandy Oaks shop. You’ll want to pick some up so you can , so you can practice Chef Cook’s lessons at home right away.
