Welcome to the CBMGA Virtual Garden Tour. Stop by in person to see the great work our Master Gardeners have done in creating the CBMGA Master Gardens. With the leadership of our Master Gardener Bed Heads and over 3,000 volunteer hours a year in creating, maintaining and improving our Master Gardens, we are extremely proud of our work and would love for you to visit them in person. If you can’t make it in person, then please enjoy this virtual tour of the plants that our Bed Heads and the other Master Gardeners have so lovingly cultivated.
Detailed information on each plant in every bed can be found in a list of the plants for each bed. The Master Gardens Virtual Tour is divided into our “North Gardens“, “Back Gardens“, “South Gardens“, “Central Gardens“, a satellite view of the grounds and a link to our offsite projects. To get started, click or tap in any of the areas outlined in red to go to a more detailed view selected area. There you can choose to go to a specific garden or return to the Site Plan. You can also access any of the gardens directly using the Bed index. If you are using a smart phone, the mapping works best when holding your phone in a landscape or sideways position. Most of our beds have signs with QR codes that when scanned will take you directly to that Bed’s page. We hope you enjoy the tour through our gardens and we would love to hear from you on what you thought of the tour at our Contact Us page.

Instructions on how best to navigate the Master Gardens Virtual Tour – (under construction)
First, thanks for stopping by. We hope you enjoy your journey through the gardens. Our gardens are always open to the public and we encourage everyone to come by our location and just walk around to see all of the garden areas. We have maps of the Master Gardens available at our location or you can download a PDF version here. The Master Gardens map will help guide you through our various garden areas but in addition to the paper map, you can enhance your visit to our gardens using a mobile phone with a QR reader.
The “tour” can either be “virtual” (viewed over the Internet) or a “Self Guided” using a map tour using our ‘virtual’ tour to enhance your experience in your visit to our gardens.
To make the tour easier to navigate, we have incorporated some standard links to facilitate moving through the gardens on the Internet. We hope the links will make it easier regardless if you are taking the virtual tour at home or using the virtual tour to facilitate your walk around our gardens.
For those who physically visit our location to see the gardens, we have plants in bloom from spring until late fall or early winter. And our “Woodland Trail” is nice year round (except if there have been heavy rains). The “CBMGA Master Gardens Tour Guide” tri-fold provides a map of the beds and areas around the site. It is basically the same as the image at the top of this page. Inside the tri-fold is the map and on the map is a QR code. If you are unfamiliar with QR codes they look like . If you have a smart phone you can download a QR reader app. They are free. Just start your QR reader, point it at the QR code and it will automatically take you to the page for that QR code…in this instance, to this page, where you can start your self guided tour. Every bed or area has its own QR code so you can just point your phone to open the page for that bed. Each bed/area page has details on the plants in that bed or area. So if you see a plant and you want to know more about that plant, it is right at your fingertips, just tap and you will find details on any plant in our gardens. If you are using a smart phone to view the gardens and plants as you take a walk through the gardens, we have found that holding your phone sideways or horizontally works best with the images you tap on to take you to that bed’s page or a particular plant’s page.
Regardless if you are taking the tour virtually at home or using the virtual tour to enhance your self guided walk through our gardens, there are a couple of things about how the pages are linked that will make your visit more enjoyable and easier to navigate.
Once you start the virtual tour the title of almost all pages are linked back to this page. In this way, no matter where you are on the tour it is easy to get back to the map to see where you want to go next.
We also have a lot of information on many aspects of gardening under our “Resources” menu item.
We truly hope you find our tour informative and enjoyable and hope you come back frequently. Things are always changing with plants.
And we would love to hear from you. Let us know if you encounter any issues, have any questions, or just want to comment on something by going to our “Contact Us” form.
Thanks again for stopping by.
