Description

The Concho Valley Master Gardeners will present the San Angelo Garden Tour on May 21. The event will offer participants the opportunity to learn about landscaping practices in West Texas.

The event will start at 8:30 a.m. and have several stops throughout San Angelo. Concho Valley Texas Master Gardeners is a Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service program.

The event is free, but preregistration is required at https://tx.ag/CVMGTourMay .

The tour will highlight turf-free options, low-maintenance and accessibility, drought-tolerant plants, hardscape examples and more.

Once registered, participants will be provided with the first meeting location of the tour. Once at the first meeting place, participants will be given a flyer with the addresses and descriptions of all the tour stops.

Master Gardener volunteers will be on-site at each stop to provide information and handouts.

Drought-conscious options, examples

“This is an event we have wanted to do for a while, but the timing is great because we want to highlight water conservation, drought-tolerant plants and landscapes that can survive and thrive in drought,” said Allison Watkins, AgriLife Extension horticulturist for the Concho Valley.

“We will tour several beautiful home landscapes in town that highlight low-maintenance landscaping, accessibility, and options for going turf-free,” she said.

In addition to landscape gardens, Watkins said there will also be several guided tours of demonstration gardens.
