About

The Teaching Garden is a wonderful place to get back to nature and see how well organically grown plants and vegetables can thrive in our area.  It is maintained by Master Gardeners of Prince William County through Virginia’s Cooperative Extension.

What’s Happening this week at the Teaching Garden will be a week-to-week glance of what is growing in the flower beds as well as in the vegetable gardens, what Master Gardeners are on the watch for – – pests, disease, etc. that you may be seeing in your own yards and gardens.

To read more about this place and find directions to get to the garden located in Bristow, Prince William County, click here    Master Gardeners are generally working at the garden every Tuesday morning, Thursday evening and on most Saturday mornings from March through October.  It is worth the trip to see it in person and we encourage folks to come out and feel the serenity it offers and get inspired too.  You’re welcome anytime.

  1. Thank you, Bev, for all your teaching garden blogs in 2015. I always look forward to seeing your smiling face at the garden to check on our progress. I especially loved your pictures throughout the year. I am so looking forward to 2016.

    • Hi Rosemarie,
      The Teaching Garden is located on the grounds of the Benedictine Monastery/Linton Hall School. 9535 Linton Hall Rd Bristow. You may visit anytime during daylight hours. There is a columbarium near the garden so we ask that if there is a funeral, you return at another time. Please check in the front office at 12:00 on the traffic circle so that the nuns know you are on the premises. If you or a group would like a tour, please contact me for arrangements. Tuesday mornings and Thursday evenings are the best timed, as Master Gardeners are already there. If you would like a schedule of “Saturdays in the Garden” free classes, please visit us at mgpw.org

      Thank you for visiting our blog and Happy Spring!
