Demonstration gardens across Oregon

There are over 50 gardens across Oregon designed to show you what plants grow well in your area, and to demonstrate sustainable gardening techniques. These are OSU Extension Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens and they're great places to visit, get ideas, see new kinds of plants and plant combinations, and learn about things like pollinator gardens, water wise gardening, how to espalier fruit trees, etc. Master Gardeners work in these gardens both to learn and to educate. These are realistic gardens in realistic settings.
