Michigan State University’s horticulture demonstration garden is located around the Plant and Soil Science Building and its teaching greenhouse. The College of Horticulture built this garden to provide students and visitors with a place to learn gardening and get inspired by beautiful plants. These exhibits and educational gardens are places where everyone can have fun and learn. Annuals, perennials, roses, herbs, vegetables, trees, shrubs, etc. growing there, can learn you gardening (the art and science of gardening).
This 14-acre exhibition garden features 6 gardens: Perennial Garden, Annual Verification Garden, Atrium Garden, Rose Garden, Children’s Garden, and Creative Garden, each serving a different purpose. From mid-March to the end of May each year, the children’s garden can also serve as a butterfly house. From mid-March to the end of May each year, children’s garden has different types of butterflies flying freely, showing the interaction between animals and plants.
The garden is located on the corner of Wilson Avenue and Burg Avenue on the Michigan State University campus in East Lansing.
