Demons Lake – Epidemic Garden and ornamental garden became a big trend by 2020 when many individuals stayed indoors, and this trend is not showing signs of declining.
North Dakota State University conducts field days and visits to provide information on hardwoods, ornamental shrubs and edible plants.
Field Day 3:30 to 7:00 pm Jose Zeleznik, NDS Extension Gardener and NDSU graduate student Stephen Ahrenholz will give a brief overview of Hidden Arborta in North Dakota.
NDSU teachers and staff will conduct a 4-hour driving tour to showcase the latest tree, shrub, fruit and vegetable research.
The 80-hectare farm includes Dele E. Herman Research Arbor, the largest tree collection in the Northern Highlands. Contains a selection of over 5,000 species, species and trees and shrubs.
The visit includes fruit research and a review of strong grapes and berry varieties. In addition, participants can learn about North Dakota’s new fruit crops such as hascaps and black curves. Vegetable growers see recent research on peppers, broccoli, cauliflower and potatoes.
“The arbor is the perfect place to spend the afternoon in the cool shade of the trees,” says NDS Extension Gardener Esther McGinis. “Apart from appreciating the beauty of the place, I guarantee you will come up with ideas for planting new hard fruits or trees on the landscape of your home.
This year, New Year’s Day, a special crop of high value, shows CBD hemp growing in a high cave.
The day ends with a walk on the arbor tree, led by members of the NDSU Woody Plant Improvement Program.
After the tour, a light dinner will be served.
