The theme of the 2017 tour is Landscape Solutions.  Garden visitors will learn many new ideas to solve different home gardening challenges.  

Here are examples of the landscape solutions offered on the tour:    

• Full sun gardens around a backyard pool
• Small backyards with vertical gardening in raised beds
• Designing garden rooms
• Planting in berms
• Vegetable gardens in small spaces
• Heritage gardens using “Pass-Along” plants

A new feature of the Fall Tour is the opportunity to win a handmade garden themed quilt.  See details in the TOUR OF GARDENS section.

For answers to your gardening questions, Master Gardeners are now available on Wednesdays, 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office.  Stop by 915 Whitmore Dr., Suite B and a Rockwall County Master Gardener will be on hand to research questions and provide gardening information.  If you can not come by in person, call 972-204-7660 or email rockwallmg@ag.tamu.edu and a Master Gardener will respond to you in a timely manner.  If the volunteers can not answer your questions on the spot, they will continue to research or will consult with a specialist that has expertise in the subject matter.

Also, Master Gardeners will be set up on certain days during the summer at the Farmers Market in Rockwall.   Go to Farmers Market in the EVENTS section and make a note of when volunteers will be available to answer questions.
