YOU GIVE ME BUTTERFLIES (BINGO & BEER NIGHT!) on JUNE 23rd @ 6-8PM

This seminar is in honor of the future work program of Mustard Seed and the #milkweedmovement- we will cover everything you need to know about butterfly gardening, growing butterfly host and nectar plants, and all of our favorite local butterflies. Former director of the Cockrell Butterfly Center and current Education Coordinator for the Houston Botanic Garden, Erin Mills, will be our guest speaker and bingo caller. This seminar will be in the form of a Butterfly Bingo game with the chance to win lots of exciting prizes, while learning great information to help you create your own butterfly oasis at home. Each ticket purchased will include ice cold beverages (or water).

THE ROMANCE OF GRAPES on JULY 7th @ 6-8PM

Come for a wine tasting, leave as a grape growing expert! The great folks at Agrilife Extension are bringing in Gulf Coast Viticulture Specialist, Fran Pontasch to discuss the differences between wine grapes, table grapes, and muscadine grapes. She will be ready to answer all of your grape growing questions to help you grow your own vineyard at home! Your ticket purchase will include a complimentary wine tasting for you to enjoy during the seminar. Join us for a great evening as we wander around Enchanted Gardens sipping wine, listening to some relaxing music, and enjoying the sunset!

FARM_TO_TABLE @ HOME- MY BACKYARD ORCHARD on JULY 28th @ 6-8PM

This seminar will include a casual small-bites appetizer sampling while you mingle and wander the nursery.

Fruit growing expert and Extension Program Specialist, Dr. Monte Nesbitt will be discussing how to grow your own olive trees, figs, citrus, stone fruit, pears, and berries to help you pick the perfect fruits for your home.

Following his presentation, the visionary behind @southernhomeandfarm, Rhonda Kaiser will also be speaking about garden design and layout and will be sharing pictures of her transformed backyard space with plenty of inspiration to help you achieve the perfect combination of beauty and function at home. PLUS, some really exciting prize giveaways!

Sample some delicious food from stations around the nursery, including a custom creation from the wonderful culinary mind of Scott Chapman, owner of Proud Pie and some fresh tasty peaches from the Georgia Peach Truck!

It's sure to be an evening to remember!

There will be 3 tasting stations for you to visit while you explore the nursery and enjoy some great music and ice cold drinks. Come hungry for tasty food and fruit growing knowledge!

Each ticket purchased will also include two beverages of your choice AND a raffle ticket entry for the chance to win a new wheelbarrow generously donated by Pecan Grove True Value/Ace Hardware filled with 10 cases of beer!

We hope you'll join us!

It's going to be hot, but we have plenty of chairs, tents, and ice cold drinks to keep you cool! Fans will be positioned around the nursery for a little break from the heat.

Enchanted Gardens will be staying open until 8pm so you'll have time after the seminar to find all of your favorite fruit trees to create the perfect backyard orchard at home!

SALSA NIGHT on AUGUST 18th @ 6-8PM

Our speaker, tomato growing expert and Fox Farm representative, Andy Chidester, will be discussing tips for growing great peppers, tomatoes, and herbs in your fall gardens.
