Autumn is a great time to plant in Texas, because new plants have time to establish before the onset of spring. This year’s Member Preview on October 10 will feature hard-to-find native plants, staff on hand to answer questions, and a presentation by esteemed Texas architect Ted Flato. During the Public Sale October 11–12, grab plants for your garden, and join us for family activities, book signings, and walks in the garden.
