2020 Plant Sale Cancelled
Out of an abundance of caution for the safety of others due to the Corona Virus situation, the 2020 Williamson County Master Gardener Plant Sale has been cancelled. We are planning to resume the yearly plant sale in 2021.
Mason Bees are a group of native bees that are excellent pollinators. They are called mason bees because they use clay/ mud to make partitions and seal the entrance to their nest. They are sometimes known as orchard bees since many of them are very good at pollinating fruit trees (apples, plums, peaches, pears) and emerge in early spring to do so.
