Learn about North Texas gardening and Earth-Kind® gardening principles at The Garden Show, presented by The Collin County Master Gardener Association. Now in its fourth year, The Garden Show has become a perennial favorite with gardeners everywhere. The Garden Show will take place on March 22 and 23 at Myers Park and Event Center in McKinney.
The fun two-day event features local vendor booths, a children’s discovery area, adult interactive education, tours of the International Award Winning Earth-Kind® Perennial Research and Demonstration Gardens, and more. Collin County Master Gardeners with decades of collective experience will offer educational and informative presentations throughout the show on a variety of topics that include vegetable gardening, herbs, creating great container gardens, Earth-Kind® perennials, propagation, trees, rainwater harvesting, drip irrigation, and water conservation.
The Garden Show is pleased to feature two outstanding speakers at this year’s show. Steve Huddleston, author and senior horticulturalist at the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens will discuss Outstanding Plants for North Texas on Saturday, and noted horticulturalist and publisher Neil Sperry is the keynote speaker and will wrap up the show on Sunday.
