Announcing the 2015 Ornamental Horticulture Research Field Day


The faculty and staff of the Department of Horticulture at The University of Georgia cordially invite you to attend their biennial Ornamental Horticulture Research Field Day at the UGA Horticulture Farm in Watkinsville, Georgia. Faculty will be stationed throughout the farm to discuss their research projects. This year, we will have researchers presenting projects taking place at the farm. Topics will include ornamental plant breeding, organic and sustainable vegetable production, and weed  management.


While you’re in the area, you won’t want to miss seeing the State

Botanical Garden of Georgia and the annual/perennial trail garden on campus.

Directions to these locations will be provided at the Open House.


Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and tours start promptly at 9:00 a.m. rain or shine.

Dress appropriate for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes.

A $25 registration fee (cash or check only – Checks Made Payable to “The University of

Georgia”) includes lunch and parking passes for those who want to visit the campus trial gardens. This year’s event is limited to 200 persons, so early registration is encouraged.
