PLANT CITY -

Dwain Miller and Mark Headley love spending time in the yard and caring for their plants at their Cason Road home.

They also love showing off their handiwork on a tour sponsored by the Plant City Garden Club.

"We've been on the tour two or three times," Miller said, as Headley fielded questions.

The Garden Club hosts the tour every few years to show off local gardens and foster a love for gardening.

"Everything we heard from the homeowners and the people who took the tour was very positive," club member and past president Cassandra Banning said. "All the gardens on the tour were so different and I think everyone enjoyed that."

Headley and Miller's home is landscaped with daylilies, bromeliads, orchids and other plants they nurture in a labor of love.

About 80 to 90 people took the Nov. 10 tour, which included stops at five homes in and around Plant City. The money generated by the $10 fee went to such causes as gardening programs at Jackson and Robinson elementary schools.
