The mission of the Sugar Land Garden Club is to support our community through education and service in the areas of gardening and related subjects.  Continuing the tradition begun in 1932, we hold monthly educational meetings that are open to the public.  Our community service involvement includes scholarships to horticultural students, support of school gardening programs and support of national, state, and local parks and wildlife areas.

The Sugar Land Garden Club is a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization.

Plants, like people, influence one another. Some get along better together than others. Black walnut and butternut have an antagonistic relationship with tomatoes, for example. The toxin juglans exuded from the trees’ roots is quite toxic to several plants, including those of the nightshade family such as tomato, pepper, and eggplant. Plant neighbor relationships might take several forms such as improve the health or flavor of a companion, interfere with the growth of a neighbor, or repel or trap an undesirable critter. Some companion plants may also attract a beneficial insect.
