Advertisment

The tour is free, but growers would appreciate a call ahead to know you’ll be coming.

Plan to also attend the MSU Plant Trial Field Day in the school's horticulture gardens on Tuesday, Aug. 9. You’ll hear the latest on new annuals and perennials, see unbiased garden performance of ornamentals, and hear directly from many of the breeding companies about their favourite plants. More details will follow soon on how to register for this event.
