Tour and open house set for new MSU trial gardens
MISSISSIPPI STATE -- Bulldog fans in town early for the Sept. 21 game can spend the morning getting ideas for their home landscapes at a tour and open house at Mississippi State University’s new trial gardens.
Visitors to the gardens can enjoy 15 minute mini-workshops at six different stations split between the new trial gardens and the existing Veterans Memorial Rose Garden. Hay wagons will transport visitors between the two locations.
Educational topics include summer bedding plants, growing hardy hibiscus plants, soil sampling, rose planting density and more.
The event begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 11 a.m. Admission and parking are free. City Bagel Cafe will provide coffee. The gardens are located on Hwy. 182 at the R. R. Foil Plant Research Center, commonly called North Farm.
The event is sponsored by the MSU Extension Service and Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station.
