Learning to Garden with the Peacocks

  • Apr 5, 2014 · 9:30 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hi ladies,

I have been wanting to visit this park, well, forever--

This day they are having 3 different speakers to share about gardening, vegetables, flowers--and selling bulbs as well--

They are charging $5 for the speakers

Something about the place

On April 5, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Mayfield Park will host Trowel & Error, the Spring event that annually attracts gardeners from all over Central Texas to hear experts give time-tested tips for beautiful gardens. Although lectures begin at 10:00, the event “opens” at 9:30 for those early birds who want to purchase Mayfield’s hard-to-find heirloom bulbs and perennials for their April gardens and to stroll the garden paths in the early morning peacefulness.

Sponsored by Friends of the Parks of Austin, Trowel & Error will feature three dynamic and knowledgeable garden experts, beginning with Amanda Moon, Heat and Drought Tolerant Plants You May Not Have Heard Of (or Thought About Using) followed by Jay White, Fence Me In – Selecting the Proper Support for Tomatoes. Rounding out the symposium will be Patty Leander, Go Vertical in the Garden With Climbing, Vining and Twining Vegetables.

10:00 AM  Amanda Moon, horticulturist, landscape designer and consultant 

Heat and Drought Tolerant Plants You May Not Have Heard Of (Or Thought About Using)

11:00 AM Jay White, self-described "avid gardener who likes to write", contributing writer for Texas Gardener, Masters of Horticulture blog

Fence Me In---Selecting the Proper Support for Tomatoes

12:00 noon  Patty Leander, passionate about home-grown vegetables,  contributing writer for Texas Gardener, Master Gardener Vegetable Specialist, B.S. in Food and Nutrition  

Go Vertical In the Garden With Climbing, Vining and Twining Vegetables


Not to be missed will be the legendary raffle of “garden goodies”. Everyone goes home a winner. It’s a wonderful way, rain or shine, to spend a morning learning how to add color into your landscape while relaxing among gregarious peafowl, towering palms, flowering trees, and ponds filled with lilies…and for only a $5.00 donation!!

Hope to see you there

    I enjoy gardening. It's very beautiful when all is done. The park sounds lovely. I would love to see it, get educated on gardening, and meet new women.

    I love gardening but the Texas heat has been a challenge. It will be great to learn some tips and tricks!
