Learn About Succulent Gardening At Library Program

Fort Bend County Libraries’ Bob Lutts Fulshear/Simonton Branch Library will present a make-and-take program on “Creating & Maintaining a Succulent Garden” on Thursday, April 4, beginning at 2:00 p.m., in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 8100 FM 359 South in Fulshear.

Fort Bend County Master Gardener Kathy Gilmore will talk about growing succulents – ornamental, drought-resistant plants that can be grown indoors or outside. Learn about the different varieties of succulents that are available, and how to select ones for the best success. Gilmore will demonstrate how to plant succulents in pots and offer advice on how to take care of them. Those attending the class will have an opportunity to create their own succulent mini-garden to take home with them.

Gilmore has been a Master Gardener since 2011 and is a certified specialist in entomology.
