A day trip to Wimberley for gardening needs, BBQ and shops

Owners at Wimberley Gardens, share their fall season planting tips, places to eat and shop

WIMBERLEY – Whether you’re planning a Fall garden or need some landscaping tips and tricks, owners at Wimberley Gardens Matt and Jennie Horvath can help you with your planting needs.

“This has been a passion of mine since I was 13,” Matt said.

The family-owned garden center and nursery is a dream come true for the Horvath family. Nearly two years old, the former BBQ restaurant is now a go-to center for outdoor and indoor plants, landscaping and unique gift ideas.

“And we found out that it was a nursery 20 years ago, so it’s nice to bring it back to that again,” Matt said.

Starting this week you can also find an array of pumpkins and pumpkin succulent planters inside the shop.
