Landisville Trial Gardens

Though the greenhouses are empty & closed for the summer we're still fully immersed in flowers!  We're already putting the final plans in motion for our Christmas season (and simultaneously  thinking about spring 2016!), last week was our annual trek to Ohio for a greenhouse & retail trade show, and just yesterday was a fun little field trip to the Flower Trial Field Day at the Landisville Trial Gardens.  

It's always a goal of ours to get up to Landisville at least once over the summer to see the trials.  There's always a wide variety of both new and standard annuals and perennials to compare and see what's up to snuff.  Plus, the Master Gardeners have a great demonstration garden for visitors to explore!  Yesterday's field day was an industry-related event, but the gardens are open to the public on a regular basis.  If you're interested in visiting (and I would definitely recommend it!), open hours and other information can be found on the Trial Gardens website.
