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
