Five homes will be featured on the Tulsa Master Gardeners garden tour this weekend showcasing large and small garden spaces, an abundance of pollinator plants and picture-perfect gardens.

This year’s theme will focus on “Pollinators R Us,” which will inform local gardeners about the perfect plant material needed to attract butterflies, bees and birds.

“Tulsa Master Gardeners is an organization that is dedicated to educating the Tulsa county public on gardening needs. There are ample opportunities at the garden tour to learn from Master Gardeners who will be at the tour on how to have the best most productive beautiful garden possible,” said Tulsa Master Gardener Diane Hambric.

The hours for the tour are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 8, and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, June 9.

Master Gardeners will be stationed in the gardens to answer questions on plant material, and the home owners will be present to share information about their gardens.

Informative presentations given by Master Gardeners will be held on both days at one of the gardens. There will also be a mosaic culture demonstration.

The garden tour is a great way to learn how the Master Gardeners have overcome their own garden problems to create successful gardens in Tulsa. This year’s tour will feature three homes in midtown Tulsa and two in Broken Arrow.

• Natural Haven, 4648 E. 57th St.
