Despite our drought conditions Texomans still came out to the Home and Garden Festival for some gardening tips. Doors opened Saturday morning for the show. A number of vendors were there with dazzling displays. Several speakers had tips ranging from keeping your trees alive during this drought to gardening with native plants. Organizers of this yearly festival told Newschannel 6 more about where funds from the event go.
