A Year of Gardens - Day 5

Today's post highlights one of Tennessee's best kept secrets - the botanical gardens at University of Tennessee Knoxville. Incredible collection of hostas, roses, and conifers, an AAS trial garden, a test garden for annuals and perennials, an edible garden that is wheelchair accessible, ever-changing works of art, and some displays that are just plain ol' fun!

In the greenhouse they are testing how light wavelength effects the nutritional value of food.
