UGA Trial Gardens Open House
On July 11, bring your sun hat and your comfortable shoes and be prepared to
be wowed. The summer annuals are spectacular in July at the UGA Trial
Gardens located behind Snelling Dining Hall and next to the Pharmacy
building on the University of Georgia Athens campus. Join us in the garden
July 11th, 2009 from 8 a.m. to noon for a spectacular look at the trials
including the newest of the new and the "best of the best."

The Gardens trials the newest varieties of annuals from all over the world
and puts perennials to the test to find those that stand up to southeastern
heat and humidity. The Gardens at UGA is open all year and is a great source
of ideas and information for students, gardeners, and industry
professionals.

     A $5 donation collected at the entrance helps support area Master
Gardener projects.
