  • Display beds commemorating the 25th anniversary of the introduction of the Wave petunia.
  • Usual landscape trial for various annuals and our ongoing shrub and hydrangea trials.

Both sites feature a large, outdoor open space that is adequate for social distancing. Masks required. You must register for a specific session as attendance is limited. Please not the requirements for each site on their respective registration pages. A liability waiver must be signed before entering the Guelph site.
