The Smith County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will be hosting a private landscape tour Wednesday March 24, 2021 from 9:00- 12:00 PM in the beautiful Pyron garden located in the Azalea District, 212 W. Dobbs St. Tyler, Texas.

The personally guided tour will be led by current Smith County horticulturist, Greg Grant, and former Smith County horticulturist, Keith Hansen. Both are professional horticulturists and garden writers for Texas Gardener magazine with advanced degrees in horticulture and many years of gardening experience.

This one-of-a-kind walking tour will not only showcase the Pyron’s spring garden and orchid house but will also include specific information on the recent freeze damage and what should be done next in dealing with it. They will also point out which plants suffered no damage and why.

Pre-registration is required with attendance limited to 35 people due to the size of the garden. Cost of the tour is $20 and is payable in advance, due by March 19, at the Smith County Extension office. There will be no registration or payment at the door. Parking is available at the First Presbyterian Church parking lot or on the street. The tour is sponsored by the Smith County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service Horticulture Education Committee. To register or for more information contact the Smith County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Office at 903-590-2980.
