The Michigan State University Horticultural Demonstration gardens surround the Plant and Soil Sciences Building and its teaching greenhouses for students and visitors to learn about gardening and be inspired by beautiful plants. Annuals, perennials, roses, herbs, vegetables, trees and shrubs growing in the garden illustrate horticulture which is the art and science of gardening. We also have a butterfly house with several species of free flying butterflies showing the interaction between flora and fauna. The Gardens offer a unique and beautiful experience for any occasion. Nestled within the beautiful campus of Michigan State University is a garden wonderland. You may chose from several different sites within the garden to host your private event. Call to schedule a private tour for groups of 10 or more.
