About the tours.

Unlike our general Open Day tours, Director of Horticulture Adam Black or a knowledgeable docent will highlight a more focused subject each month, ranging from Peckerwood’s specific plant groups, garden design strategies, seasonal interest and more. Attendees will often get the rare opportunity to see sections of the garden never visited during the general tours.  The goal is to deepen your understanding and appreciation of Peckerwood’s unique collections and their use in the landscape to spark inspiration for your own garden.

Feb 4 Insiders’ Tour – More winter interest in the garden

Last month we touched upon the ornamental interest to be found in the garden in early winter in the forms of flowers, fruits, and many other showy features. This month we will continue to highlight the succession of winter interest. Just barely starting last month, we should have a good representative of Magnolias flowering, along with later-flowering cultivars of flowering apricot, Camellias, Mahonia species, and other plants that weren’t flowering last month. Woodland perennials like Trilliums should be emerged and possibly flowering. Many of the winter-fruiting plants like the hollies should still be holding their berries, and we will find many more distinctive features at their best this time of year.

Pre-register for your special visit to Peckerwood Garden.

Tours are approximately 1 ½ hours long. Most tours are limited to 15 people (unless otherwise specified) so pre-registration is required.

Peckerwood Garden has been widely acclaimed for design originality, the breadth of its collections, and its education and conservation programs. Learning about these collections is an ongoing process and an excellent opportunity to deepen your knowledge of plants, design, Peckerwood Garden, and more.

Members, please call 979-826-3232 or email EventRegistration@peckerwoodgarden.org for reservations.

Unfortunately, baby strollers and pets are not allowed in the garden due to the delicate and sharp plants and small uneven pathways. Service animals with identification are allowed. Garden entry is by guided tour only.


Tours are $15 per person, space available. Members are free. Pre-registration is required.
