For individuals who want to grow their own herbs for fun and to add zest and flavor to their food, the Williamson County Master Gardeners will present the online program “Seasonal Herbs” via the WebEx platform on March 8.
The free program, which will be from 7-8 p.m., is open to the public. It is one of the monthly horticultural education programs offered by this volunteer horticultural organization of the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Williamson County.
The program presenter will be Master Gardener Radhika Baliga, who is on the herb committee and has been raising them for quite some time. He will talk about growing, harvesting and drying herbs.
Participants will learn how to use and preserve cool-season plants such as dill and cilantro, as well as warm-season plants like basil and lemongrass. They can be grown in your backyard, on your patio, or even on your windowsill.
For additional information, contact Kate Whitney, AgriLife Extension horticulture agent for Williamson County, or call the agency’s office at 512-943-3300.
