If plants from central Texas will grow in your neck of the woods, do bring a wagon to the Garden Festival, set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 29 and 30, 2014, in Zilker Botanical Garden, 2220 Barton Springs Road, Austin, Texas.
Vendors from across Central Texas will fill the garden, selling a variety of plants – annuals, perennials, cacti, succulents, vegetables, herbs and tropicals. Festival goers can also shop for garden-themed arts and crafts, ceramic pottery, jewelry, herbal products, baskets, birdhouses and garden benches.
The annual Flower Show in the Garden Center features judged designs and an array of horticultural specimens. This year’s theme is “Grandma’s Kitchen”.
There’ll be live music on the Soundstage in the Rose Garden and gardening talks under the big, white tent next to the Garden Center.
Zilker Garden Festival is co-sponsored by the Austin Area Garden Council and the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department. The festival is the primary fundraiser for AAGC, and proceeds support Zilker Botanical Garden.
