Ellis County Master Gardener Lawn, Garden and Landscape Manual
The 2017 updated version of the Ellis County Master Gardener Landscape Manual is now available. This manual was compiled by the Master Gardeners specifically for gardeners in Ellis County but much of the information is pertinent to other areas of Texas. The articles were prepared by the Master Gardeners and Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Service.
The latest edition of the manual still covers all areas of landscape and gardening, Earth-Kind® information, plant and soil diagnostics and safe pesticide management, as well as current information on rose rosette and a list of Earth-Kind® roses. The monthly garden checklist has been updated and information on how much compost, soil or mulch to use has been added. Some information on soil temperature and the vegetable variety selector were also added.
The manual is available from the Master Gardener booth at the Farmers’ Market in Waxahachie or the Extension Office at 701 S I-35, Waxahachie, Tx 75165. The cost is $15.00.
