Herself's Houston Garden

Conservation through cultivation

Jerry’s Jungle garden and plant sale

I first ran across Jerry’s Jungle online before I moved to Houston and thought it was wonderful. I’ve been here two and a half years and just recently had a chance to visit. Jerry’s Jungle is only open to the public a few times a year. This is not a garden that will endear you to your neighbors or the HOA, but gardeners will be enchanted.

Jerry’s garden is full of wonderful plants, most are tropical and many collected from around the world on Jerry’s and his wife’s travels.

They have plant sales a few times a year, in April, July and October. I scored a ton of cool loot. My favorites are the sugar cane and castor plants. If you are putting together a tropical garden or looking for unusual plants attend one of Jerry’s sales. You won’t find better prices anywhere.
