With spring in full bloom, garden tours are popping up all over Texas. One of the must-see gardening events in north Texas is the Celina Garden Tour.

On June 8, the Celina Garden Club hosts their annual Garden Tour, an exclusive showcase of eight area home gardens and wineries. This year’s event takes the viewer on a self-guided tour, winding through the picturesque north Texas countryside around Celina. The tour highlights the burgeoning area’s rustic charm, providing stunning views of Celina’s vast farmlands and rolling terrain as well as rare glimpses of several of the area’s most impressive gardens.

“This year’s tour reflects the urban growth Celina has experienced with the addition of new, smaller garden spaces featured at homes in a couple of the city’s suburban developments,” says Melissa Green, who oversees special events and philanthropy for the Garden Club. “It will also highlight Celina’s rural heritage with sprawling vineyards and peaceful country properties.” 

Other breathtaking venues on the tour include the Caudalie Crest WineryEden Hill Winery & Vineyard, a private home vineyard, and a trio of suburban home gardens that reflect the beauty and benefits of indoor-outdoor living.

Founded in 1945, the club’s mission is to educate and stimulate the knowledge of gardening. Club members actively participate in civic improvement programs, which include sponsoring an annual scholarship for students interested in environmental-related studies. The club used funds from its 2015 tour to execute a garden and learning center at Celina Elementary School. Proceeds from this year’s tour will assist the club in continuing its community outreach and beautification projects.

“We are excited about the 2019 Garden Tour as we enjoy sharing Celina’s beautiful gardens and wineries with our north Texas friends and neighbors,” says Celina Garden Club President Lynn Balint, whose own home garden is featured on the tour. Courtesy photo
