Gardens on Tour: It's been a fun ride, but it's retiring (for now).
For ten years, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center’s annual Gardens on Tour has opened home gardens across the Austin area to the public. Featured gardens have used native plants in creative, beautiful ways to create sustainable gardens. Thousands of people have enjoyed the tour over the years.
We hope that the tour has inspired people to integrate native plants, creative designs, and sustainable techniques into their own landscapes, thus improving habitat for wildlife and saving water and other resources. It’s been a great 10-year run, but in 2015, the Center is placing Gardens on Tour on hiatus in an effort to focus finite staff and financial resources on growing other programs.
Thank you for your continued interest and support of the Center and its mission. Please check out our other events here: wildflower.org/events
