About this Trial

The 1,400 square meter trial garden in Guelph, Ontario, gives commercial growers and residential gardeners ample room to see what flowers and plants perform best in southwestern Ontario's climate. The University of Guelph Trial Garden is the only university-operated ornamental trial garden in Ontario. It is part of a network of research centres across North America to determine which plants grow higher and fuller, bloom quicker, stand up in extreme weather conditions, and resist common plant diseases.
