Garden club plans tour in Mineola


The Fannie Marchman Garden Club will hold its 2nd Annual Garden Tour June 11 from  9 a.m.-5 p.m. in Mineola.

Tickets are $10 per person and may be purchased at any home on the tour.

Plants will be for sale at some featured gardens, along with door prizes and a fun game of search for the lady bugs throughout the gardens to win a prize. 

It will be held come rain or shine.

The following homes/gardens are included:

The Callaway-Wisdom Home at 512 Sycamore was built in 1892 and is the oldest standing home in Mineola. Four porches are so inviting to sit and relax in the rockers. The backyard features so many welcoming features not to be missed.

Tabitha and Todd Morgan, an artsy family working their best with all they have been blessed.  This craftsman bungalow home at 316 W. Blair offers original charm. Gardens offer bulbs and blooms from generations back to 1907. Curb appeal draws visitors to sit on the wide wrap around porch overlooking a victory garden. The backyard offers something for everyone and is a must see.

Dottie Murray’s home and gardens at 383 CR 2610 will surely catch the eye in the Woodland East subdivision. The backyard is decorated with all her up-cycled thrifty finds in fun colors that will yield smiles. It just makes you happy. The backyard offers something for everyone.  

Jeanne Rowland’s home at 370 CR 2311 is like taking a step back in time. Her stately southern style home offers beautiful wide landscaped flower beds. The long winding driveway, flanked by beautifully planted beds, draws visitors to meander into the backyard. This home is among many beautiful homes in the Hickory Creek Estates. 

Bob Wells Nursery at Sorelle Farms is more than a nursery and is quickly becoming a gardener’s premier destination for classes, workshops, gardening supplies and of course the leading supplier of high-quality decorative and edible producing trees.

Sorelle Farms was established in Mineola in 2014 at 975 CR 2220 and acquired Bob Wells Nursery in 2018. The farmhouse style retail store is so welcoming with a seed exchange library and inviting porch overlooking the raised bed vegetable gardens. They have a model homestead on site featuring the cutest little chicken coop for the hens surrounded by a demonstration orchard. Rachel and Ed Donnelly are graciously providing a $50 gift card to the nursery for a drawing for tour guests. Check in at the tent area for a guided tour.
