Spring Means Hill Country Lawn and Garden Show

The Hill Country Lawn and Garden Show is 9 a.m.-3 p.m. March 25 at the Burnet Community Center. Admission is free.

BURNET — As spring has apparently sprung a little early this year, yards across the Highland Lakes are donning warm-weather colors and things are starting to happen in the gardens.

Unfortunately, without care, those vibrant colors could easily turn dead brown or dandelion yellow, and the activity in the garden might involve aphids and leaf cutters.

If you're looking to regain the advantage, stop by the 19th annual Hill Country Lawn and Garden Show from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, March 25, at the Burnet Community Center, 401 E. Jackson St.

The event features a lineup of lawn and garden vendors with plants, supplies, and information. The Highland Lakes Master Gardener Association sponsors the event and invites a host of vendors, organizations, and others who know how to turn your thumb green — or at least a light shade of green.

Even if you're an experienced gardener who gravitates toward soil amendments and seed packets during shopping outings, you'll benefit from a trip to the show.

Plus, it's just a great chance to rub elbows with others who share your passion for plants.

"I can't go. What about my kids?" Well, the Highland Lakes Master Gardener Association has some kids activities set up to help them grow their own green thumbs as well.

There are even prize giveaways.

The price of admission can't be beat: It’s free.

If you're interested in setting up a vendor booth, call Roxanne Dunegan at (512) 756-9396. For general information, call Irene Dauphin at (254) 498-6009. Go to the Highland Lakes Master Gardener Association’s website for more details.
