The Trial and Cutting Garden is specifically utilitarian in its purpose. Cut flowers, herbs, and perennial plants are clipped, dried, pressed and prepared for wreaths, dried arrangements, card making, tussie-mussies and culinary use. The annual Herb Fair features many products from this garden. Come and see the amazing garden quilt, fragrant lavenders and striking celosias. 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.
