The Trial Gardens at UGA are nationally known for trialing annuals and perennials for the Southeast, and developing new plants for the Horticulture Industry. For example, you can find the Athens Select plants and the new Southern Living line of plants in the Gardens at UGA. “If you really want to know what plants perform well in Georgia visit our Gardens in July and August to see which plants are thriving in our heat and humidity,” states Trial Garden founder Dr. Allan Armitage. Although this garden is open to the public year-round, this special open house on the morning of July 11th also offers:
-Guided tour by Dr. Allan Armitage
-Book Sale and Signing of Dr. Armitage’s books
-Rain Barrels for sale
-Area gardeners and UGA Horticulture Club members to offer advice
-NEW: Art in the Garden!
Proceeds from donations and plant sales will be used to fund upkeep of these world-renowned gardens. This is a unique opportunity to learn about and buy plants that thrive in Georgia gardens.
