Who Are Parker County Master Gardeners?

Making a difference in the community.

Master Gardeners are members of the local community who take an active interest in their lawns, trees, shrubs, flowers and gardens. They are enthusiastic, willing to learn and to help others, and able to communicate with diverse groups of people.

What really sets Master Gardeners apart from other home gardeners is their special training in horticulture. In exchange for their training, persons who become Master Gardeners contribute time as volunteers, working through their Texas AgriLife Extension Service office to provide horticultural-related information to their communities.

Insights from Master Gardeners

Butterfly Gardening

Which do you prefer: a flowerbed or a show-stopping garden? Me, I want a little piece of paradise that captures the eye as well as the heart.  I want the visitors to my garden to be just as spectacular as the flowers that live there.

Dividing Bearded Iris

Irises provide some of the earliest spring color in the garden, from white to purple too many other colors of the rainbow. Managed planting of individual irises, genetically programmed to bloom at different times of the year, can provide you with a succession of iris blooms over several months.

Great Plants for Winter in Parker County

If you think pansies are your only option for winter color, think again. Many Texas gardeners use a variety of plants to liven their gardens during colder times of the year.

Growing Plants From Seeds

Just imagine… a huge live oak tree grows from an acorn no bigger than a nickel. A watermelon grows from a seed half the size of a dime. Seeds can be as big as a coconut or as small as the lead point of a pencil.
