While I've been debating with myself whether to create a list of spring plant sales, I came across a few events that are going to happen soon. Like next week! So I thought I bet somebody might want to go to one of these and I oughta at least tell y'all about them. Or just list who, what, when, where, and links for more information. Apologies for any typos. (And thank you Larry Rice for adding some events to the NGA Calendar of Events!)

Jan. 22 - 25 Jammin' Jams 2020, San Antonio
https://garden.org/apps/events...

Jan. 24 Earth Kind Fruit Tree Seminar, San Antonio
https://garden.org/apps/events...

Jan. 25 Fruit Tree Sale, Harris Co. Master Gardeners, Houston
https://hcmga.tamu.edu/event/f...

Jan. 25 - 26 Katy Home & Garden Show 2020, Fort Bend Co. MG, Katy

Jan. 25 - 26 Sugar Land Home & Garden Show 2020, Fort Bend Co. MG, Stafford
https://fbmg.org/event/sugar-l...
https://www.sugarlandhomeandga...

Here's one that I think might already be underway. Maybe. It's what I scribbled down last night.
Could be wrong about the start date.
NOW thru 2/28 Tree Seedling Sale, Denton County Soil & Water Conservation District
https://dcmga.com/files/2019/1...

So it would appear that I'm through debating. I'd give it a 'probably'. Of course, if I do, it will be in a different format. Right now, I'm just trying to get some January events posted for y'all.

Before I try to read my handwriting where I scribbled some upcoming plant sales, please let me know if it's worth making a list. A 'thumbs up' will be sufficient. Thanks.

Lot of fruit trees in Harris County and somewhere else - maybe Fort Bend County or Walker or maybe I'm making those up because (a) I don't remember and (b) I don't know Texas counties.

EDITED TO SAY: I got it right! Mostly.

There is a Fort Bend County and they are having a fruit tree sale.
2/08 Fruit Tree Sale, Fort Bend Co MG, Rosenberg
https://txmg.org/events/fort-bend-county-2020-fruit-tree-sale

AND
There is a Walker County and they are having a sale. But no idea if they're going to be selling fruit trees though.

And of course there are many fruit tree sales in Harris County and elsewhere.

Uh oh. This isn't exactly a "spring" sale but I bet certain members who shall remain nameless will be interested in this event. The Mercer Society is having a Plumeria Workshop & Sale at the Mercer Botanic Gardens in Humble on August 29. Here's what they have to say about it.

'Join us for our annual Plumeria Workshop & Sale. Make sure to come early, as last year we sold out of our plumerias, and our educational speaker presented to a full house. This year we will be featuring more varieties and quantities of Plumerias for everyone to enjoy.'

Don't say I didn't warn y'all.

Thanks for the warning about the plumeria sale. I'll want to go to this one as it is just around the corner but I'll probably forget even though I'll put it on my calender. I'd appreciate another warning maybe sometime this summer? Pleeeese?

Rather than trust my memory, you could add it to the Calendar of Events and get 5 acorns for doing so.
