Zilker Botanical Garden Open House
Saturday, Sept. 21, 10am - 1pm

What's the best place to learn about Central Texas gardening? Zilker Botanical Garden!

Austin Area Garden Council's 30 member garden clubs give numerous programs every month, most of which are free and open to the public. Some of this year’s topics include rainwater harvesting, composting and growing earth kind roses.

If you have questions such as how do I care for my orchid, how do I prune this bonsai, or what is eating my plant, you can find help at the Garden Center.

Join us at our Open House to learn more about our clubs. Featured events include:
    · Garden Tours
    · Plant Clinic - for free advice about that sick plant, bring a cutting!
    · Flower Arranging Demonstrations
    · Growing Culinary Herbs
