Weekend Gardener

May 1st, 2015 – Williamson County Weekend Gardener


It’s hard to believe May is already upon us, and all the early Spring rain is definitely delivering robust blooms so far.  This weekend is probably going to be the peak time for most azaleas.  The gorgeous white beauties we found at a home in Franklin are a great example.

You’re probably also noticing rapid growth of weeds.  The warmer temperatures really wake them up.  Here is a link to the homemade weed killer recipe we shared a few weeks back.

Next Saturday, check out the Williamson County Master Gardener’s Association Plant Sale at the Ag Center, just off I-65 at Peytonsville Road (Exit 61).  This is a great event, and you can find a world of unique plants as well as the all-time classics.  And while you’re grabbing those favorite plants for your yard, you’re also helping a great organization that volunteers hundreds, if not thousands of man hours to local gardening projects.
