Don’t Give Up Growing Orchids:
Orchids call to us. Their flowers are vibrant, intricate, with almost unreal perfection. Unrivaled in the plant world, Orchids have a reputation for being finicky because they have a specialized set of growing requirements, and when you treat them like ordinary houseplants, they die. But there is hope. Orchids aren’t hard to grow, they are just different.
Sandy R. is a Certified Texas Master Gardener, and an orchid expert. Sandy explained how to grow these beautiful plants.
The event was free and open to the public. The Gonzales Master Gardeners shared coffee, tea, cookies, and knowledge at the PACE building Thursday, Jan 19.
Three Orchids were given as prizes to attendees. Individuals pictured from left to right are: Shirley F. (Orchid recipient), Pam S. (Orchid recipient), Sandi W. (L&L Coordinator) and Esther Bell (Orchid recipient).
Gonzales Healthcare Systems & Methodist Healthcare Ministries invites you to attend.

RSVP is required by 2/17/2017. Please call (830) 672-7581, ext. 1010. Lunch will be provided to attendees.
Gonzales Master Gardeners to Host Lunch Seminar - Preventive Maintenance and Proper Care of Lawn Equipment
It will be spring before you know it, although the past few weeks may have said otherwise! Did you have to mow the lawn recently? Did your lawnmower spit and sputter as you cranked it up? Were the blades sharp to give you a nice clean cut?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to come to the Gonzales Master Gardener seminar to be held on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 from noon until 1:00 pm. Speaker for the event will be Jacob Carter of Gonzales Outdoor Power. His topic will be “Preventive Maintenance and Proper Care of Lawn Equipment.” Now is the time to get the lawn mower, weed eater, leaf blower and all those other lawn power tools ready for the spring season. Don’t wait until the day comes to mow the lawn only to find out that the mower is not running properly. You are invited to come and learn how to properly maintain all that equipment to make your job easier.
Come enjoy a free lunch and learn how to get that equipment in tip-top shape. The event will be held at the GMG building called PACE (Plantatarium: A Center for Exploration) located at 623 N. Fair Street next to Gonzales Elementary School. Lunch will be served at noon and the seminar will follow. Everyone is welcome. If you have any questions contact Fran Saliger (830-672-2953).
