Did you know… that our team of Master Gardeners maintains several demonstration gardens at the AgriLife Extension offices located at 9020 Airport Road in Conroe?
You are welcome to come by and visit any any weekday between the hours of 8-5. Our only rule is that you don’t pick any of the produce or flowers as we are recording plant performance to give better recommendations to the public.
We have a beautiful Bog garden with several water features. We have a few Topiaries in the Bog garden…. just for the fun of it!
We also have a large Vegetable garden where we run various trials to determine the best producers for Montgomery county. We always have a large crop of tomatoes as well as many varieties of squash and a huge variety of other vegetables.
We have a demonstration Orchard which includes our plantings of berries and grapes. One of our outstanding gardens is the Floral area with an amazing variety of beautiful plantings.
One of our Floral areas is dedicated to the display of Native Plants which are best suited to the conditions present in Montgomery county.
We are rebuilding our garden dedicated to Herbs where we also run trials to determine the best performing varieties to make available at out plant sales. This garden attracts butterflies and the bees that do a good deal of our pollination work.
Our Discovery garden is designed for children, to let them get close to the plantings and have fun with the planting methods and the variety of mixed plantings.
So please take the time to visit our gardens . If you have any questions you can call the help line @ 936-539-7824.
