Calloway’s Nursery in North Texas is offering a series of free gardening clinics at its locations throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Experts from Calloway’s staff provide information and ideas on flowers, plants, landscapes, and lawn care for beginning or advanced gardeners.
I recently went to a clinic on groundcover; it was comprehensive, detailed, and because it takes place at the store, you could actually see what was being talked about. If you’re in the D/FW area and are interested in learning more about gardening, or need some help, these clinics are a great way to do.
