The 2020 Michigan Garden Plant Tour is Still On

Jennifer Zurko

The 17th annual Michigan Garden Plant Tour, which offers commercial growers, landscapers, public garden employees and other industry professionals the opportunity to learn about new and existing ornamental plant selections, will be held from July 27 to August 7.

The tour is a coordinated open house of leading ornamental young plant producers (Four Star Greenhouse, Mast Young Plants, Raker-Roberta’s Young Plants and Walters Gardens), and the Michigan State University (MSU) Horticulture Gardens. Attendees can observe plant performance at multiple locations, grown with different environmental and cultural conditions, both in the ground and in containers.

The Michigan Garden Plant Tour is completely free, but please check the tour website at for specific times, RSVP requirements and other information for each site. The tour’s Facebook page (@miplanttour) also features numerous photos and details about each of the gardens. GT
