The gardens are living laboratories and garden classrooms for horticulture,
plant pathology and entomology. Commercial visitors use the gardens to
develop plant lists knowing that varieties have been fully tested in this
climate and under standard cultural conditions. Others use the trials
for photography, relaxation, inspiration or the simply selecting the best
plants for their own gardens.
