Featured were more than 2,200 varieties grown in normal gardening conditions for southwestern Ontario.

The cooler temperatures of the past few weeks resulted in some smaller plants, but overall quality was excellent.

The trials are hosting tours by Ontario members of the Garden Writers Association today.

The trial gardens are located just minutes east of Simcoe on Hwy. 3
