Time to get growing in McKinney

January 31, 2017 by  

McKinney green thumbs who want to learn more about how to make their home landscape look as great as possible are invited to an event where they can learn about the latest ideas in gardening.

During the McKinney Garden Show, guests will be able to gather an assortment of tips and other information they can use in their own garden. An assortment of local vendors will have displays set up, and there will also be hands-on workshop, talks by experts in the field, and children’s activities. Business and organizations that plan on taking part in an expo like this can use a professional printer to supply them with banner printing and other services.

The presentations that have been scheduled for the event will cover vegetable gardening, how to create a pollinator garden that attracts bees, butterflies, birds, and moths, monarch butterfly migration, craft beers, Indian marker trees, and the farm-to-fork movement. The public can tour the Myers Park demonstration gardens, and there is plenty of free parking. Those who come out will be asked to pay a $2 entry fee, and the proceeds will be donated to a local not-for-profit group.

The McKinney Garden Show will be held in Myers Park and Event Center on March 18 and 19. A full schedule of activities and other helpful information can be found on the Collin County Master Gardeners website.
