Vegetables- A brief primer on growing vegetables to whet your appetite!

Master Gardener Volunteers of CCE-RC plan and maintain the Demonstration Gardens, trying out new and different plants to determine their suitability for our area. Many of the plants are selected for drought tolerance or deer resistance. Others are chosen for size, blooming time and winter interest. Maintenance follows Cornell’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM). IPM encourages the minimal use of toxic pesticides. Demonstration gardens at CCE-RC include the Cutting Garden, Fern Garden, Herb Garden, Hillside Garden, Native Plant Garden, Ornamental Grass Garden, Ralph Snodsmith Perennial Garden, Rain Garden and IPM Fenced-In Demonstration Gardens.
