January is the perfect time to plant fruit trees, grapes and other berries! As always, the MCMGA has planned the annual Fruit and Nut Tree Sale for January 26th, 2019 – with numerous varieties of fruit trees, grapes, and pecan trees. Come early to hear the pre-sale program at 8:00 am, which will highlight the varieties being offered, then shop the sale from 9:00 until 12:00 noon.
This sale features bare-root trees and berries, which just means they are not planted in pots and the roots are exposed. We will bag them up for you, and recommend planting your purchases right away, or at least covering the bare roots with soil (once you get them home)until you do plant them in order to prevent the roots from drying out.
No matter the weather, be sure to join us for this annual sale on Saturday, January 26th. Be sure to bring your wagon if you have one. The sale location is the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension at 9020 Airport Road in Conroe, 77303. The pre-sale program begins at 8:00 am and the sale is from 9:00 am until 12:00 noon.
