The Trials and Triumphs of a New Garden

August 8, 2013
In late May of this year, Longwood opened our first ever Trial Garden for public view and display. Located in the Idea Garden, this space is now dedicated to showcasing an abundance of cultivated plant varieties, or cultivars within select genera, and teaching our visitors about the gardening techniques we use throughout our Gardens. It’s been a challenging year to start a new garden (with more than 8 inches of rainfall in June), but testing the limits of plants is really what trial gardens are all about!
