Successful gardening topics and speakers
The program’s spotlight will be on the experiments conducted on growing primocane blackberries and russet potatoes in the Central Texas area, each of which faces unique challenges.
Kat Hajda, AgriLife Extension horticulturist for Williamson County, and Texas Master Gardeners Dale Hill and Dana Drake will discuss the “when, what, how and why” of Central Texas gardening and the related obstacles and solutions.
Central Texas offers unique temperature, soil and other factors that gardeners need to be familiar with to succeed in the region.
