Trial Gardens

Will These Plants Make the Grade?

A trial garden is one where plants are grown specifically for evaluation and testing. In our trial garden, the horticulture team works with nurseries to evaluate plants for how well they will perform for the average gardener or landscape in Palm Beach County. Originally used to test grasses, the Trial Gardens now display different seasonal plants.
