Houston’s 5 Best Public Gardens

Peckerwood Garden:

Most of the plants in this 10-acre botanical garden, located about halfway between Houston and College Station, were grown from seeds collected by its founder, retired Texas A&M architecture professor John Gaston Fairey, over decades of trips to Mexico. Founded as a private garden, the grounds are now open to the public, and feature a wide array of Asian and native Texas plants, interspersed with Mexican sculptures from Fairey’s extensive collection.
