Extension Master Gardeners to hold spring garden tour
Calling all gardeners—from the novice to the seasoned gardener, all will find tips and inspiration for their gardens at the K-State Research and Extension-Sedgwick County Extension Master Gardener Spring Garden Tour on May 17 to 19.
The gardens will be open on May 17 and 18 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on May 19 from noon to 4 p.m.
Six home landscapes throughout Wichita have been selected to feature diverse, creative landscapes. Features will include adapted plant materials, outdoor entertaining areas, roses, hostas, composting, raised bed gardens, ponds, and shrubs to fit your personality. All plants will be labeled and Extension Master Gardeners will be available at each garden to answer gardening questions. In addition, as a Bonus Garden, the newly renovated Extension Demonstration Garden will be open for tours.
Tickets may be purchased before May 11 for $8 from Extension Master Gardeners and at the Sedgwick County Extension Education Center at 21st and Ridge Road. Tickets may also be purchased online at http://emggardentour.eventbrite.com. Tickets will be available at the gardens for $10. Proceeds go toward funding educational outreach programs of the Extension Master Gardeners throughout Sedgwick County.
