"We are approaching the time of year that the live oaks begin to molt. Unlike most trees, live oaks don't drop their leaves in the Fall and regrow them in the Spring. Instead they drop their old leaves at the same time the new ones are growing. This results in some very unattractive trees for a couple of weeks and the excessive pollen turning everything yellow. Many people don't realize why the oaks are looking bad and will call an arborist about their "sick" tree. It's most likely nothing to worry about, but that being said, never hesitate to call your arborist if you have a tree health concern."

Resident Question

When can I plant flowers in Dallas?

March is the time to start planting gardens full of your spring blooming favorites, vegetables like tomatoes or peppers, blooming shrubs, spring flowers, and more! For your vegetable gardens, start planting beds full of cool season vegetables.

Liz Moyer

Denton County Master Gardener

Instructor, Native Plant Sociey of Texas

Our program, “Natives in the Suburbs and How to Love them,” will be delivered by Liz Moyer of the Denton County Master Gardeners Association and the Native Plant Society of Texas.  Having lived in North Texas over forty years, Liz sympathizes with our special gardening challenges.  She will discuss how to include natives in a traditional landscape that will keep you and your neighbors happy! It's been very popular and is based on my own experiences adding many beds of natives to our home landscape in Flower Mound.

Liz grew up in Central Texas near a farm her grandfather purchased in the late 1880’s and has been a resident of North Texas over 40 years.  She has been a Texas Master Gardener for fourteen years and a member of the Native Plant Society of Texas since its founding in the early 1980’s.  Liz is especially interested in bringing more native plants to home and commercial landscapes so that Texas looks like Texas!
