Fredericksburg Chapter

The Fredericksburg Post Office Garden

The Fredericksburg, Texas Post Office Garden; an official NPSOT garden, managed by Linda Ross and Kim Lewis. In Fredericksburg, people still go to the post office! Once there, they are treated to a stunning garden display of native plants. Four years ago, these gardens were weed infested mounds of dirt. Today, they are colorful showcases of native and adapted plants and are thriving …in spite of being planted above a packed construction foundation and subjected to daily doses of auto emissions and the extremes of Texas weather. Linda reports that one of the best parts of tending the beds is interacting with the visitors to the Post Office. Some like to share their gardening experience; others ask questions; many share their enthusiasm and encouragement.
