New plants and more! You’re invited to the 2022 edition of the Guelph Trial Gardens! See new perennials and annuals that plant breeders from around the world have sent us to evaluate for growth performance in southern Ontario. This weekend’s Open House is taking place on the grounds of the Guelph Turfgrass Institute at the University of Guelph.
In addition to new plant evaluations, several other events will also take place.
- Houseplant sale and swap: Two of our student employees with a specific interest in indoor plants will be hosting a houseplant sale and swap. This will be taking place in the Frost Centre, right beside the Trial Garden. Those interested in buying, selling or trading indoor plants can participate in this unique event. Anyone interested in being a “vendor” can contact Olivia at email@example.com. Anyone interested in increasing their plant collection is invited to simply come along and visit us (cash sales only, please).
- Monarch butterfly rearing: A monarch butterfly rearing specialist will be on hand at the trial garden site to demonstrate her techniques and answer questions.
