The Vegetable Garden features top performing edible varieties and different growing methods. The Herb Garden includes special collections of single herbs as well as textiles, cosmetic, medicinal, culinary and dyes and a lavender trial. The Turf Demonstration offers eight plots to show different types of grasses performance through both cool and warm-season. The Missouri Natives Garden offers planting suggestions ideal for the home landscape. The ornamental border includes small trees, shrubs and perennials ideal for both full sun and full shade gardens.
