The Ohio State University Cultivar Trials are part of the Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens. Our friends at Chadwick shared "Faculty and staff worked with Chadwick volunteers and Franklin County Master Gardener Volunteers (MGV) to implement the trials. Chadwick horticulturist Anna Williamson was responsible for growing the plants and working with volunteers to manage the trials. Julia Wilson, program manager, organized the volunteer workdays. Volunteers planted seeds and plugs, planted the trial beds, weeded, and assisted with the evaluation of the plots. The objective of the trials is to observe the performance of new and recently introduced annual cultivars under the environmental conditions of central Ohio."
