This year the Master Gardeners of Greene County have teamed up with the Springfield Watergarden Society in offering one of the finest garden tours that will be found in this area. The Spring Garden Tour will have 11 garden stops as well as one bonus stop.

Tour guests can go to any garden on the tour at any time, in any order, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 7. But, there will be a suggested route. This route has been carefully driven and studied from many angles to make the most efficient use of time and miles.

This is a full day of fun for the hardcore gardener as well as those who just like to get out and see a pretty garden. There are collector gardens and gardens for the do-it-your-self’s as well. Everyone will enjoy this tour and beg for more. And, because of that, we are planning a Fall Garden Tour as well. It will be on Saturday, September 20.

This fall, the Master Gardeners of Greene County will team up again with the Springfield Watergarden Society in offering another fine garden tour.  The Fall Garden Tour will have only 8 garden stops, so there will be plenty of time to fit this in between fall festivals.

All gardens can be toured from 1-6 pm. But stick around because one SWS garden will also be open additional hours for a sample of what an SWS Tiki Tour is like! Come and go between 6-8 pm for samples of chili and sweets while viewing the garden lights at twilight.

Tickets are available now for only $5 per person in advance. On the day of the tour tickets will be $7. They can be purchased from Garden Adventures in Nixa, Maschino’s, Wickman Gardens, Schaffitzel’s Greenhouse and from the Master Gardener Hotline Room at the Botanical Center, 2400 S. Scenic.
