Join a Polk County Master Gardener for a guided tour around the Florida-Friendly Landscaping Demonstration Garden at the UF/IFAS Extension Service in Bartow. The gardens are installed, designed and maintained by the Polk County Master Gardeners following the nine principles of Florida-Friendly Landscaping.

The tour will begin at 9:00 a.m. at the Gazebo on the south side of the Extension building (between the Stuart Center and the Extension building). Bring water, a hat and sunscreen. Plant lists are provided, but a clipboard and a pen can be helpful. You must register for the tour.

This is a very helpful tour for anyone planning to install new plants, replace high-maintenance plants or are new to Central Florida.

In addition, you will learn how to grow healthy and nutritious herbs in your yard. Herbs have great versatility in the kitchen and can be used around the home. Learn seasonality, preferred growing conditions and harvesting tips.

Workshop is presented by the UF/IFAS Extension Polk County.
