Spring Garden Tours with PlantTAGG
We are glowing with excitement over the PlantTAGG-enabled Spring Garden Tours across North Texas. Of course, it’s incredible to see the amazing private and community gardens. We love the beautiful native plants, unique specimens, and colorful flowers. And, it’s been especially great to hear feedback from everyone who experienced PlantTAGG in the gardens. Over 1000 people used PlantTAGG technology to enhance their garden experiences! And, we are thrilled to welcome them to our thriving community.
It’s truly an honor to see these spaces any time. However, there’s something special about a tour in Spring. Dallas County Master Gardener Association’s Tour Chairman Nancy Black put it best, “We’re excited that visitors will see the gardens during the prime growing season. It’s a great opportunity to get ideas for their own gardens and learn from experts.”
We included a few images for you to enjoy. If you have other photos, please share and tag @planttagg!

Why a PlantTAGG-enabled Tour is Better
PlantTAGG works closely with Garden Tour coordinators, Botanical Gardens, and Master Gardener Associations. In fact, we love to PlantTAGG-enable residential and community gardens for tours and visitors. Tours that leverage PlantTAGG are better for planners and visitors alike. Using PlantTAGG, visitors can access the most current horticultural information about featured plants using their phones. And, tour coordinators can rest easy knowing the most accurate and interesting information is available for all featured plants – regardless of the size of your team!
