February's Program is Exciting!

Please join us on Wednesday, February 10, 2016 for a very informative program given by Galveston County Master Gardener, Chris Anastas on Growing Native Milkweed.  As you may know, Monarch butterfly populations have been declining for years.  This unfortunate event is due in part to the loss of the host plant - the only plant Monarch butterflies lay their eggs on and the only plant Monarch caterpillars eat.  Also, most of what we have is called tropical milkweed and it would be better for butterflies if we added native milkweed to our gardens.  Looking forward to seeing you there!

The presentation will cover the following topics: 

1.  Why is planting native milkweed especially important to Texas?

2. How to find and identify our local native milkweed

3. How to germinate native milkweeds seeds
