Aspiring to produce delicious home-grown tomatoes is the goal of many gardeners. Perhaps the most popular garden vegetable in our area, tomatoes can be challenging to grow in our climate. Beginning and veteran gardeners alike are invited to learn valuable tomato gardening skills at a free Advanced Vegetable Gardening seminar next month!
Which varieties respond best to our weather? When is the best time to plant tomatoes in Montgomery County? What nutrients do tomato plants require?
For professional answers to these questions and more, plan now to attend the advanced vegetable gardening class presented by The Woodlands Township Environmental Services Department on Saturday, February 11, 2017.
The free class will feature two of Texas’ most respected tomato growers – Bill Adams and Tom LeRoy. Both have spent many years growing tomatoes, learning what works and what doesn’t. With their professional backgrounds in horticulture and sense of humor, they will share their vast experience and knowledge.
When: Saturday, February 11, 2017
Time: 9 a.m. – Noon
Where: Multipurpose Room, 8203 Millennium Forest Boulevard
