If you’d like to have more plants in your home or garden, one of the best and least expensive ways to get them is to propagate them— either from your own stock or from a friendly neighbor’s garden. If plant propagation isn’t one of your best skills, don’t despair. The San Saba Garden Club and Texas AgriLife San Saba will offer a Master Gardener Class starting Monday, January 23, to help you develop your gardening expertise.The course includes 50 hours of instruction, including time in the classroom and time on field trips. A number of expert presenters will speak about a variety of topics including Tom Guthrie from Mills County who will focus on Texas Tough Plants, Heath Lusty from Lampasas County will teach us about Container Gardening and Chris Sansome, Texas A & M Entomologist, will tell us all we need to know about insects. Several others will focus on plant growth and propagation, rainwater harvesting and organic gardening.This is going to be a great class. There’s a good mix of men and women, young and old and several husband-and-wife teams. The cost of the class is $75 per participant including the text book. Or, if two people sign up and share a book, both can take the class for $100 total.The class includes 12, three-hour sessions. Classes will meet on Mondays from 3:30 pm-6:30 pm starting January 23 at the Garden Club Building at Mill Pond Park. Not only will you learn new things, but you’ll have the opportunity to meet new people and see places in our county you never knew existed.If you’ve always wanted to be a better gardener or you just want to shake the winter time blues, here’s your chance.
