The Michigan State University Horticultural Demonstration Gardens surround the Plant and Soil Sciences Building and its teaching greenhouses. The Department of Horticulture constructed the gardens to provide a place for students and visitors to learn about gardening and be inspired by beautiful plants. These display and teaching gardens provide enjoyment and learning for everyone. Annuals, perennials, roses, herbs, vegetables, trees, and shrubs growing in the garden illustrate horticulture -- the art and science of gardening.

There are six different gardens, each with its own distinct purpose, that make up this seven and one-half acre display garden: perennial garden, annual trial garden, foyer garden, rose garden, children's garden, and idea garden.

The gardens are located on the corner of Wilson and Bogue streets on the campus of Michigan State University in East Lansing.

This world class horticultural garden is a must if you are on the East Lansing campus.

Also nearby on campus are the Beal Botanical Garden and the magnificent 4-H Children's Garden. The Clarence Lewis Landscape Arboretum, just across the railroad tracks is well worth the visit too. There is also a nice, small garden and ponds at the MSU Radiology building about half a mile away.
