This evening I arrived in Columbus, OH for Cultivate18, one our industry's biggest events. After checking in, I boarded a bus and headed over to the OSU trial gardens. What are trial gardens? They are a real world test of plant varieties from different breeders. Growers and garden centers in the horticultural industry use trial gardens to help make decisions on what plants they might carry in the future. At the trial garden this evening, you could see tons of people walking around with notebooks and cameras.
Trial gardens are also a great resource for home gardeners too! If you're visiting the Columbus area, a stop a the OSU trial garden and the Chadwick Arboretum is a great activity for any garden nerd. Also, if Howlett Hall is open, be sure to check out the green roof.
