Member Tips

1. Keep Up With What’s Happening

Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and X – it’s the best way to keep tabs on what’s going on in the garden! Keep an eye out for updates, events and demos happening.

2. Plan For Slower Times

During our spring and fall festivals, the garden gets very crowded on weekends after 11am if the weather is good. Plan to get here right when we open (or earlier) to avoid the crowds while still enjoying the most beautiful garden features.

3. Visit Often

Try to visit us at least twice per season (once at the beginning and once at the end) even if you only have an hour to spare. While the festivals themselves don’t change very much in this time, the garden is always evolving through the unique North Texas weather – what you’ll see on a walk in May is VERY different from what will be blooming in July.

4. Don’t be afraid of the summer heat.

We offer a lot of ways to keep cool and avoid the sun such as tons of shade, indoor areas, water features and misters. Not to mention that the garden is particularly vibrant during the summer with lush, verdant greens, blooming succulents and blooms full of pollinators everywhere.
