Lubbock Master Gardeners: Fall Gardening
Master Gardener Betsey Heavner will focus on beginning a Fall garden, what to plant, and how to prepare for colder weather.
Join us for The 2nd Annual Hub City Garden Tour and see a variety of ways to landscape and decorate your yard. We will have several gardens for you to view and each is different and exciting. Each garden will feature an interview with the homeowner on the process of creating their garden area as well as a table of goodies that may include plants, seeds, garden accessories or things made from the garden for sale. Attendees will have access to all the gardens on the day of the tour along with a guide to give you more information as well as a place to take notes. All proceeds go to all the education materials, activities and outreach for Lubbockites by Lubbock Master Gardeners. We hope to see you on the tour!

CATALOGUE YOUR ENTIRE GARDEN FOR FREE
With Garden Tags you can keep a record of all your plants in your garden in one place. When you add a plant you also get access to all the information about that plant in our growing encyclopedia of 18,000+ plants. What’s more, you get a handy record of how each plant has grown over the seasons too.
FREE GARDEN AND PLANT INSPIRATION
Garden Tags members have already shared hundreds of thousands of gardens, plants and beautiful flowers on the gardening app. With GardenTags you’ll never be stuck for garden design and plant inspiration again. Follow expert growers like the RHS and TV Gardener Michael Perry or organic growers like Ellen Mary Gardening. From rose specialists, to organic allotmenteers to succulent growers – they’re all sharing daily inspiration to expand our growing horizons. If you like garden design there are thousands of designs to choose from too.
FREE PLANT IDENTIFICATION & ADVICE FROM REAL GARDENERS
Do you need to identify a plant or flower? Want to know which plants will grow best and flower in your garden? Thinking of going organic? GardenTags has 1000s of experts on hand and ready to answer your garden, plant and flower questions. Our gardeners will also help you identify pests and diseases.

GARDEN JOURNAL AND PLANT CARE TASKS
When you upgrade to Garden Tags Premium you’ll receive plant care tasks when your plant needs care e.g. when it’s time to prune. There are also handy videos showing you the best way to approach the garden task too. Whether you’re an organic allotment gardener or a succulent grower they’ll be answers to your growing needs and personalised tasks alerts. You’ll also be able to add growing notes to each plant and task.
Beginner gardeners love GardenTags because of the plant identification and answers to many common gardening problems but also because they find the plant encyclopedia invaluable. As you get more confident you can follow the RHS, organic growers, allotment gardeners, succulent growers and experts in garden design. You never know you may be able to help someone identify a flower or help with a plant care task for someone’s planting journal.
This app is neat as a community resource for plant identification, but I think the garden planning apps like Homegrown are better suited for task reminders. However, the social and photo aspects of this app make it fun and interactive.
