VICTORIA – On Sunday, volunteers with the Victoria County Master Gardener Association presented the Victoria Garden Tour. People who love flowers and gardening were able to visit seven sites along the tour to see which blooms were on display. At their leisure, visitors could stroll through the gardens and using the plant number, they could look up the name on the list provided by the organization. Master gardeners were on hand to answer questions and offer tips for a variety of annuals. Garden Association officials say the even was planned with Victorians in mind.
“We do it for people to look at various gardens to see what does grow well here, and easily here, what makes it through our freezes. It’s just an enjoyable thing for people to come and see how other people do their yards,” said Pat Plowman, Co-Chair, Victoria Educational Gardens.
Victoria gardener, Donna Shafer, said watching people enjoy and learn from her garden was exciting.
“It was exciting. I enjoy it, I love it, I love color, I love gardening, canning and I like to grow all types of plants and it was great to be able to share it with our community.”
The community did come in record number to get gardening tips and enjoy the colorful flowers. The next event will take place in the Fall of 2015 when there will be an array of brand new blooms.
