Are your fingers itching to dig in the dirt? Do your eyes fly through the seed catalogs, searching for just the right plant for your yard or garden? Is your “green thumb” hankering for tender young plants to tend? The annual Wilson County Gardening Day is just for you, and it’s just around the corner!

Sponsored by the Wilson County News, the San Antonio Water System (SAWS), KLUP Radio, Milberger’s Gardening, and more, Wilson County Gardening Day on Saturday, March 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. will feature a live broadcast of the “South Texas Gardening” radio show featuring Calvin Finch and Jerry Parsons on KLUP 930 AM from noon to 2 p.m. In addition, there will be demonstrations of a low-flow potato-flushing toilet, free blood-pressure screenings, music from the “County Line Community Band” from 10 a.m. to noon, a silent auction, a schedule of children’s activities, and more.

Admission and parking are free!

This much-anticipated annual event features plant sales by the STARS program of the Floresville Alternative Education Center. Plant sales by the STARS students, with proceeds benefiting the program, will continue through the following week after the event.

The event will take place on the grounds of the Floresville Alternative Education Center, located at 335 Alternative Lane, one-half mile east of U.S. 181 off of Sutherland Springs Road/C.R. 329 in Floresville.

Vendors will offer a plethora of wares, from plants to birdhouses and seeds to secateurs. Local groups and nonprofit organizations will sell food, beverages, and more.

Seminars will be presented hourly from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Topics include feral hogs by Texas Parks & Wildlife Game Warden Jesse Garcia, Texas Wildscapes by Texas Parks & Wildlife biologist Ryan Darr, olive trees by Dr. Saundra Winokur, grafting fruit and pecan trees by Dr. Larry Stein, and growing tomatoes by Dr. Jerry Parsons.

Children can enjoy fun activities, such as “Go Fish” at 10 a.m. and Seed Bingo at 10:30 a.m. They can make a pine cone bird feeder at 11 a.m., make seed cards at noon, or enjoy a plant walk at 1 p.m. “Just Dig It,” a dirt-digging station, will be open to children throughout the event, as will an inflatable pool.

Visitors to Wilson County Gardening Day can receive free 3-inch xeriscape plants and $5 gift certificates to the STARS plant sale. These will be dispensed at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Hourly gift certificate drawings will take place throughout the event. You must be present to win; the certificates are good for the day of the event only.

For more information, contact Jerry Kotzur at SAWS at 830-393-6300 or 830-484-8037.
