Bienvenidos from the folks at the UGA Trial Gardens. As you likely know, our main reason for being is to conduct research and collect data on the plants in the garden. We just had our Public Open House on July 10th and it was a huge success- over 450 people came. If you’re in the Athens area, you know that it’s ungodly hot at this point in the summer. Some of our plants are starting to show stress from 17+ days of 90 degree weather. However, that’s exactly why our trial garden is located here in Athens, so we can trail the plants in our hot and humid climate! This blog is here to inform you of our daily doings and keep you up to date on events we’re holding. The next date to look forward to is our Evening in the Garden on September 16th at 5:30. There will suppossedly be wine tasting, cheese and a live jazz band. So until then, stay tuned to see what daily life is like as a gardener at the UGA trial gardens.
