    On April 1, from 9:30 am  to 1:00 pm, Mayfield Park will host Trowel & Error, the Spring event that annually attracts gardeners from all over Central Texas to hear experts give time-tested tips for beautiful gardens. Although lectures begin at 10:00, the event “opens” at 9:30 for those early birds who want to purchase Mayfield’s hard-to-find heirloom bulbs and perennials for their April gardens and to stroll the garden paths in  early morning peacefulness.

    Peacock4Sponsored by Friends of the Parks of Austin, Trowel & Error will feature three dynamic and knowledgeable garden experts:

    • Jay White, Contributing editor for Texas Gardener, Masters in Horticulture.  Topic:  Pest-free Organically
    • Patty Leander, Texas Master Gardener Vegetable Specialist, contributing editor for Texas Gardener.  Topic:  Tiny Garden/Small Garden: from Microgreens to Straw Bales.
    • Bruce Leander, Biotechnology, Art, Photography, Golf , “Sort of” the Photographer in Residence at Lady Bird Wildflower Center.  Topic:  It’s A Snap To Take Good Garden Pictures:  A Few Simple Tricks to “Develop” Outstanding Digital Pictures.

    Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, Mayfield Park is a favorite site for social events, family picnics and peaceful reflection. The stone-walled gardens around the historic cottage include fish-filled ponds, winding paths among heirloom plants, gregarious peacocks and cozy nooks and niches.

    Not to be missed at Trowel & Error  will be the legendary raffle of “garden goodies”. Everyone goes home a winner. It’s a wonderful way, rain or shine, to spend a morning learning how to add color into your landscape while relaxing among gregarious peafowl, towering palms, flowering trees and ponds filled with lilies…and for only a $5.00 donation!!
