Spring Plant Sale

The annual Plant Sale in April or May is one of the most popular and well-attended public events offered by the Denton County Master Gardener Association. The Plant Sale is our biggest fundraising event, which enables and supports educational outreach and projects. Shop for native and well-adapted plants according to their care needs and growth habits, such as Native Plants, Full Sun, Part Sun, Shade, etc. You’ll find plants grown by Master Gardeners that are not readily available in plant nurseries or big-box stores. Master Gardeners are on-site to share their expertise, answer questions, and make recommendations.

Garden Tour

The annual Garden Tour is a much-anticipated event with Denton County residents. All gardens on tour belong to DCMGA members or showcase DCMGA project gardens. Self-guided tours of the gardens inspire and educate visitors to solve common gardening problems. Educational demonstrations are available on a variety of gardening topics. The Garden Tour is an important fundraising event that supports our educational programs and community outreach.

Fruit, Vegetable, Herb, and Flower Show

The Fruit, Vegetable, Herb, and Flower Show is held in June each year in Denton County. North Texas residents of any age are encouraged to enter fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers harvested from their home gardens for judging. Top entries win ribbons and cash prizes in the Adult and Youth divisions.


Fall Into Gardening: Learn to Grow & Manage the Flow

During autumn’s pleasant weather, the Fall into Gardening event educates the public on planning and preparing for spring. Participants learn that fall is a great time to plant trees and shrubs, plant cool-season vegetables and herbs, and flowering annuals. Denton County Master Gardeners provide free classes with hands-on activities and garden tours. Learn about mulching, composting, sprinkler inspection and repair, and water conservation. Join us in Fall 2024 for this educational and fun experience.
