Arbor Gate Field Trip:
Arbor Gate is located at 15635 FM 2920 in Tomball. They had us at 'hello'. This is much more than a garden center--it is
quite literally an inspired collection that includes unusual plants,artisan-created decorative pieces, and a constantly
changing array of items that bring beauty, comfort, and even flavor to the home and garden. After a short introduction
by owner Bevery Welch, we split into two groups for a personalized and informative walk and talk throughout the demonstration
gardens and nursery where we got answers to our many, many plant questions.

Latest Gardening Project
Heights Boulevard Rose Garden
The Victorian Rose Garden on the Heights Boulevard esplanade at 20th Street has been looking rather sad of late, but no more! Pedro Mora of
Gilbert's Tree and Landscaping have spruced up the rose garden lifting the live oak, pruning the roses and parterre hedges, weeding the beds,
and tucking the roses in with a nice blanket of fresh mulch.
