Fort Worth: Want a beautiful garden? It’s as easy as 1-2-3
Do you love gardening but aren’t quite sure which plants to choose for your landscape to blossom? Having trouble finding plants that look great and thrive season after season?
The Fort Worth Water Department suggests residents take the guesswork out of finding the right plant for the right spot by purchasing a custom-designed, water-saving UPlantIt boxed garden.
Pre-planned gardens include sure-fire plants hand-selected by Texas A&M AgriLife Water University horticulturists that are proven to flourish in the challenging North Texas soils in our sometimes harsh and unpredictable climate.
UPlantIt gardens include 32 starter plants sown in 3-inch pots. Each plant is tagged and numbered to correspond with professional designs to make planting as easy as possible.
Select from the three garden layouts. Each boxed garden comes with a comprehensive planting and maintenance guide.
Order your UPlantIt Garden through Aug. 4 or until supplies last, then pick up at one of four locations from 8 a.m. to noon Sept. 28:
- Texas A&M AgriLife, Dallas Center, 17360 Coit Road, Dallas.
- McKinney Community Center, 2001 S. Central Expressway, McKinney.
- Upper Trinity Regional Water District, 900 N. Kealy Street, Lewisville.
- Resource Connection of Tarrant County, 2300 Circle Drive, Fort Worth.
