Who we are ...

The gardens are living laboratories and garden classrooms for horticulture, plant pathology and entomology. Commercial visitors use the gardens to develop plant lists knowing that varieties have been fully tested in this climate and under standard cultural conditions. Others use the trials for photography, relaxation, inspiration or simply selecting the best plants for their own gardens.

What we do …

  • Evaluate plants during the growing season
  • Provide information for commercial growers and gardeners
  • Hold Field Day for visual evaluation and tour
  • Conduct tours upon request
