The State Botanical Garden of Georgia is a public educational facility operated under the auspices of the University of Georgia. It is a "living laboratory" for university students and faculty who utilize the collections and natural plant communities for studies in a variety of disciplines. The Garden is also a public garden for enjoyment by the general public who find beauty, knowledge and solitude in a garden setting.
The Garden is located approximately three miles south of the University campus. Founded in 1968, it now encompasses more than 300 acres, much of which borders the Middle Oconee River with 5 miles of nature trails, theme garden displays, a three-story conservatory, café, gift shop, volunteer opportunities, and on-going educational classes for adults and children. Visit: the State Botanical Garden website or call 706-542-1244 for more information and hours. A great place to visit to learn more about gardening and to get ideas for your own landscape.

Explore an urban garden. Over 30 acres of unmatched beauty in the heart of Atlanta, featuring breathtaking gardens, woodlands and more. One of the world's largest permanent orchid displays. Tropical garden displays in glass conservatory, interactive children's garden, rare and endangered plants from tropical rain forests and desert regions, water features, poison dart frogs, gift shop and café.

In the Edible Garden, deep pink ‘Albert Heijn’ and ‘Purple Prince’ complement ‘Mammoth Red Rock’ cabbages among the row crops. The showstopper is a rainbow field of tulips in the North Courtyard. The kaleidoscope of bulb color promises to be a warm-up to spring, when the Garden awakens with trees, shrubs, and perennials ready to unfurl their beauty once again. What better way to usher them in than with hundreds of thousands of bulbs?

Full Bloom Nursery 2017 Seminar Schedule
Thursday March 30th, 2017 at 1 pm: Retired County Extension Agent and rose expert Gene Anderson, (who also co-hosts Homegrown on WDUN AM 550 and FM 102.9 with Kellie Bowen of Full Bloom Nursery), will be our featured speaker. If you know Gene, you know that he has quite a sense of humor along with a lot of knowledge. In other words, he's a fantastic speaker! You will learn a lot and you will laugh a lot.
The cost of the seminar is $35.00 and includes refreshments and one rose of your choice from our inventory of hybrid teas, climbers, floribundas and grandifloras that sell for $25.00.
If you stopped growing these wonderful old fashioned roses because of the disease issues, especially black spot, the good news is that now, more than ever, it's easy to grow these roses because of the products now available to systemically treat disease and insect problems.
We will have on hand a representative from Bayer Advanced Company, the manufacturer of Bayer Rose & Flower Care, a product we sell and recommend, due to its effectiveness and convenience to use. No more mixing and spraying every week!
More seminar dates coming soon!
