Trial and Cutting Garden

Choose a Garden

The Trial and Cutting Garden is specifically utilitarian in its purpose. Cut flowers and kitchen herbs in this section are clipped, dried and prepared for wreaths, dried arrangements and culinary use. The annual Herb Fair features many products from this garden. Currently, a Salvia collection is being tested for hardiness in climate zone 6. The plans for portions of the Trial and Cutting Garden change from year-to-year but this less formal space draws gardeners and visitors alike who discover new plants for their use and delight.
