What definitely can help is to see the plants “in the wild,” so to talk. To help that transpire, the Tulsa Grasp Gardeners have a annually Backyard Tour with Master Gardeners available at every site to solution your concerns. This year’s yard tour concept is “Luxury Landscapes,” and we have 5 wonderfully landscaped houses to inspire you.
