Sunday, May 18, 2014 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“Lovely to look at, delicious to eat ” and lots of water-saving ideas!

Join for a tour of seven private gardens located in north Stockton, Morada, and Lodi. All are unique and diverse, both large and small, reflecting the owners’ unique personalities and styles.

With increasing water concerns for our area this year, tour-goers will appreciate examples of lawn conversions to no-mow lawns and California native plant gardens. One of the gardens will feature a water audit demonstration; another has a dry stream bed. Many gardens will provide examples of water-thrifty plants that thrive in our area. Edibles share the stage this year with raised vegetable planters, herb gardens and citrus stealing the show. Still, there will be plenty of beautiful flowers on display along with striking foliage plants.

Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and identify plants. Plus information will be available on environmentally-friendly pest control, efficient irrigation techniques, and other sustainable gardening practices. Whether you’re looking to reduce water use and maintenance, attract wildlife, or grow more of what you eat, this year’s tour is for you!
