Inside Austin Gardens Tour 2015

For Gardeners. By Gardeners

The Travis County Master Gardeners Association has set Saturday, October 17, 2015 for their popular Inside Austin Gardens Tour (IAGT). The tour provides a rare look inside six private gardens and one public experimental garden that demonstrate realistic, sustainable gardening practices for Central Texas.


The tour’s theme remains: “For Gardeners. By Gardeners”, focusing on the practical beauty, variety and stamina of native and well-adapted plants in the garden. In turn, each garden has a theme that demonstrates a particular set of characteristics Central Texas gardeners are likely to encounter in their own gardens. Those themes are:


Flashy Natives – bright and colorful
Sunbathing Natives – brutal, full sun
Shady Natives – shade and under trees
Death-Defying Natives – especially hardy, minimal water
Cottage Natives – Texas tough classics
Oh Deer! – deer-resistant, not deer-proof
Native Testing Ground – new varieties and proven winners
