Garden Gallery

Cottage_Garden"Displaying a diverse palette of plants for the home landscape."

The purpose of this teaching garden is to display a diverse palette of plants for the home landscape that demonstrates:

  • the tried-and-true as well as the new
  • environmentally responsible practices
  • varieties suitable for local growing conditions
  • broader horizons to please the senses throughout the year

Designed, planted and maintained by Johnson County K-State Research and Extension Master Gardeners, the Garden Gallery was established in May 2007. Many different plants were used in pursuit of diversity and were selected for:

  • ornamental attributes,
  • environmental-friendliness,
  • reduced maintenance,
  • and innovative garden design.

A collection of small trees and hardy shrubs are the backbone and primary focus of this garden landscape.
