San Antonio Botanical Garden

For its Holidays in Bloom event, the San Antonio Botanical Garden is dressed up in more than just red and green.  The Botanical Garden's Candace Andrews took me through the 38-acre hilltop gem.

 "It's a wonderful celebration of the holidays here at the garden. It'll run through December 31st. We've got holiday horticulture for everyone to enjoy."

 

The Children's Garden, the Carriage House, the many nooks and crannies of the San Antonio Botanical Gardens hold generations of memories. With an eight-acre expansion, the largest single expansion in the gardens' history, the site will have even more space for making those memories.

How will the expansion change the look and feel of the gardens?

There’s a guided tour happening Saturday morning at the San Antonio Botanical Garden that could change the way you see your garden. 

If your garden is a water-sucking, chaotic landscape, maybe you should look east. Like way east. To Japan.

“It really is one of the most authentic Japanese gardens of its size in the United States,” said Master Gardener Stephanie Jones.

She’s talking about Kumamoto En at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, and a course that’s full of ideas for you.

“The course itself is to discover the benefits of replacing turf grass,” she said.

An event this weekend might just be creepy enough for an early Halloween.

It’s not quite the man-eating plant seen on the Addams Family, or Audrey II from "Little Shop Of Horrors," but the San Antonio Botanical Garden this weekend welcomes a special exhibit of carnivorous plants.

"Savage Gardens" celebrates these oddities of nature and the resourcefulness of adaptation.
