2018 ND Home Garden Variety Trials

ND gardeners are encouraged to participate in this educational and informational trial of garden vegetables and flowers for 2018.  Participants in the trial can choose up to seven vegetables and/or flowers to plant.  Each species will have two varieties to plant and compare during the growing process and produce quality.  A short evaluation will be filled out by the participant to rate how each variety did during the trial.  The evaluation will be submitted to NDSU to use as data for future variety trials.    We encourage you to take part in this fun trial!  For more information and a catalog on seeds . . .
