The Jefferson County Horticultural Committee members welcome you to call and register for their T-Budding and Pecan Grafting Workshop. Grafting improves the quality of the pecans growing on a tree. The workshop is going to be led by none other than Bonnie Childers. Bonnie, or “B.L.,” could write a book on the subject. He is an extremely well-respected area gardening expert who has tackled this subject for years for the good folks of this community.
