Among the many demonstration gardens maintained by Fort Bend County Master Gardeners are those designated as ‘specialty’ gardens. Although all our gardens are ‘special’, these gardens are meant to showcase a certain garden style or function.
The following gardens are found in this area:
- A butterfly garden to attract colorful insects
- A cottage garden to remind you of simpler times
- A shade garden to showcase plants that do well in shade.
Why Specialty Gardens?
Our Master Gardeners are much like you. We are a diverse bunch with different interests. Over the years, these gardens have evolved because Master Gardeners wanted to demonstrate how a particular kind of garden would work in Fort Bend County.
Master Gardeners strive to use plants that will thrive in our very unique climate and soil conditions while invoking a certain garden style. If you have an interest in a special kind of garden, visit our gardens and get some ideas. We’re usually in the gardens on Wednesday mornings and second and fourth Saturday mornings. Come chat with us.
The list below will take you to information about plants in each garden.
