As spring marches on, and with Tax Day behind us, we can turn towards modern-influenced gardening, and this weekend is a great time to get started. The Dallas Arboretum's annual plant sale is April 21 & 22nd, and features Dallas-friendly plants, including several that won't show up on the shelves of the big box centers. The Dallas County Master Gardener Association is sponsoring its own plant sale the morning of April 21. This sale will feature specimens from local Master Gardener collections and from students at the Multiple Careers Magnet Center School, with proceeds to their vocational programs.
If you're not looking to get any loam wedged under your nails, consider delegating a local landscaping firm with the design. Redenta's has a few great example designs, and for more inspiration, check out UK site mylandscapes.
