BY CHRISTI BERTELSON/BURNET BULLETIN

 

The Highland Lakes Master Gardener host the 18th Annual Lawn and Garden Show this Saturday, April 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Burnet Community Center.

During the show, enthusiasts can take workshops as well as browse the vendors, information booths and other activities.

 “"We'll have a number of programs and events that people can learn about a number of things from,” said Lavona Fry, member of the Master Gardeners.

Along with demonstrations by the Master Gardeners and a room dedicated to demos there will be shopping.

“The plant holding area is a great thing for the shoppers to be able to leave their plants and continue to shop, they can drive up when they are finished and the plants will be delivered to them,” said Fry.

There is even something for the kids during this event.

“Our Children’s Corner will be doing Fairy garden dishes that the kids can make and take home,” said Fry.

The Master Gardeners will start their demonstration booth at 9:15 a.m. and last for 45 minutes, running until the event is finished.

The Demos include:

  • 9:15 a.m.- Wade Hibler- “Rain Water Barrels”
  • 10:15 a.m. - Violet Carson,   "How to Garden in Big and Small Spaces"
  • 11:15 a.m. - Fredi Franki,   “Butterflies”
  • 12:15 p.m. - Rose Lackey,   "Yes, You Can Grow Artichokes in Texas"
