FALL VEGETABLE GARDENING
SAT. 7/20/19 9:30AM - 12:00PM
HOUSTON MUSEUM OF NATURAL SCIENCE
One advantage of living in Houston is how easy it is to grow vegetables in the fall and winter seasons. Think you have no space for a garden? Not to worry, as many of these vegetables can be grown in containers on a sunny patio. You will learn when and where to plant, soil preparation, seed germination and transplanting a long list of vegetables.
Indoor presentation. Class ticket may be used to tour museum permanent exhibits. There are no refunds on classes.
