El Nino has the Garden Club buzzing with anticipation for an excellent growing season. In her Hutto greenhouse Cornelia Ferrel has been raising recommended tomatoes Celebrity, Heatwave, cherry tomatoes and lots of zucchini and yellow squash. Many members bring their favorite pass-along plants. Cherry Laurel is a small tree that Jan Herring says is easy to grow and has flowers for the bees and berries for the wildlife.
 Here is a list of other tried and true favorites that will be there; 5 gallon size cedar elms; lots of gallon size Salvia farinacea (mealy blue sage); mountain laurel;  yaupon hollies and pavonia (rock rose), windowsill cilantro and parsley, and many, many more.
We have lots of free literature about growing native and adapted plants.
