For the fourth consecutive year, young plant growers in Michigan are teaming up with Michigan State University (MSU) to offer a 2-week tour of floricultural displays. Growers and retailers are invited to attend the Michigan Garden Plant Tour to learn about new varieties and performance evaluations as well as attend the MSU Garden Plant Showcase.
Each participating company will showcase different plant specialties and product lines. It is a venue to observe plant performance and trends under a variety of outdoor conditions.
Companies are open Monday through Friday during normal business hours. The MSU Horticulture Gardens are open seven days a week from dusk to dawn. It is recommended to contact the sites in advance before visiting.
