This session focuses on the highlights from the University of Guelph's 2021 Trial Garden Season. The trial sites at Landscape Ontario in Milton, the Royal Botanical Gardens in Burlington and at the University of Guelph's GTI in Guelph all provide there own unique growing environments for new annuals, perennials and edibles. The best annual performers from these sites will be discussed in the context of their suitability for container and landscape applications. Perennial trial entries from the Ontario Perennial Trial at Landscape Ontario will be presented with a focus on winter hardiness and survival and season-long ornamental value. Edibles from the trials will be evaluated and presented primarily on their suitability for small urban gardens.
