We grow and evaluate hundreds of new varieties each year including annuals, perennials, and vegetables.

Our goals are:

  1. To determine how these plants perform in our mid-Michigan growing conditions
  2. Inspire the gardening public to explore new varieties and plant combinations
  3. To educate the horticulture industry and our garden visitors about our findings and recommendations.
