The first garden installed by MHS, it is one of three trial gardens in New England, and tests new and unreleased varieties of annuals and perennials, as well as heirloom vegetables. Plants under trial are grown beside similar, established varieties and are judged based on suitability for growing in zones 5 and 6. Varieties from All-America Selections (AAS) and Proven Winners undergo a 5-stage trial process. Learn more about past AAS winners!
Come see what exciting new varieties we have this year!
