The Master Gardener Discovery Garden is free and open daily to the public.
Please plan on visiting the Garden anytime during the growing season to view the inspiring Garden designs and exciting new annuals, perennials, grasses, native plants, hardy roses, dwarf conifers and bushes. Remember, gardens are planted to “peak” during the Iowa State Fair, at which time all garden art and plant labels will be in place and Master Gardeners will be available from 8:00 am - 8:00 pm to answer your gardening questions.
Master Gardeners Keep Iowa
Happiness was the 2013 Iowa State Fair!
Iowa Public Televison created this fantastic piece that says it all!
And check out this coverage from WHO Channel 13 about our hidden gem!
Once again, Polk County Master Gardener volunteers came together this year in battle against Mother Nature to bring joy to all that visited the Discovery Garden during the 2013 Iowa State Fair!
During the 10 days of the fair, Master Gardener volunteers were available to talk with the public and answer questions about the Discovery Garden or about any other gardening topic of interest.
Thank you to the Discovery Garden co-chairs and all the volunteers that helped in the beds to make it another successful year! We are already planning for 2014!
