Gardening in Texas presents its own challenges. The state of Texas covers many varied soil and climate types. Texas A&M has several programs that address these challenges. Two of these programs are showcased by Fort Bend County Master Gardener (FBCMG) gardens: Earth-Kind® Landscaping and the Texas Superstar® Program.
Earth-Kind® Landscaping is both a method for gardening and a series of plants. All FBCMG gardens strive to follow the Earth-Kind® principles and practices to create beautiful, easy-care landscapes, while conserving and protecting natural resources and the environment. Visit our Earth-Kind® Circle Garden, which is composed of plants that have the Earth-Kind® designation.
The Texas Superstar® Program develops plants that meet the rigors of Texas gardening. Our Texas Superstar® Garden displays a beautiful selection of Texas Superstar® plants.
Rounding out the FBCMG Texas collection is a Texas Native Plant garden. Visit this garden to see a beautiful selection of Texas native plants.
