The Master Gardeners Fairgrounds Project consists of the two flower beds at the entrance to the Education Building at the Baxter County Fairgrounds. If you are at the Baxter County Fairgrounds take a minute to look over these lovely beds. There is always something of interest. Since the beds have herbs, perennials, bulbs, roses bushes and annual flowers, there is always something in bloom throughout the season.
These beds are tended to by many dedicated Master Gardeners. Due to the long stretches of cold weather we had last winter, many of the plants and several bushes did not survive and had to be replaced this year. Generally we spend two hours once a month maintaining the beds. Also, volunteers water weekly through the summer.
Everything has grown well and there has been a full season of color for this year. Our volunteers have worked very hard at keeping these beds in shape.
