Demonstration Gardens are Being Renovated
The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners’ Demonstration Gardens are undergoing major renovations with some gardens being totally removed, some being moved to different locations, and new gardens being introduced. Please bear with us as we go through this transition.
Demonstration gardens are landscapes that can be visited to inspire gardeners, teach gardening concepts, show gardening techniques, and much more. Learn more about Demonstration Gardens.
Our Demonstration Gardens are used for many purposes.
- Train Master Gardeners in horticultural skills
- Get hands-on training in planting techniques, transplanting, rooting, plant identification, landscape design, insect control and identification, and many other areas
- Demonstrate best gardening practices to Fort Bend County residents
- Show different types of gardens and the plants typically used in each.
Fort Bend County Master Gardeners help maintain a number of demonstration gardens. We invite you to visit our 4 acres of Demonstration Gardens and take a self-guided tour. Maps are available onsite. It’s a great way to learn! Who knows! You might be there when master gardeners are working and you can talk to the volunteers who design and maintain them. Park in front of the Agriculture Center located at 1402 Band Road, Rosenberg, 77471.
