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.

     *Tours and book signing by Dr. Allan Armitage
     *Plant Sale
     *Pi Alpha Xi (Horticulture Honor Society) will be selling rain barrels
