Horticulture>KSU Gardens

Welcome to growing plants in Riley County.  We are blessed with many different growing conditions for you to express your gardening style.  There are deep soils along our water ways and shallow rocky soils on our hills.  Average rainfall is 4 inches different between North and South Riley County.


By getting acquainted with your site and identifying the plants adapted to these conditions, you will have a garden that is relaxing and gives you a sense of place.


You are invited to bring in samples to the office of plants, insects, and diseases along with your questions for the Agent to assist you with.



Project EverGreen is launching a nationwide outreach program connecting local lawn and landscape firms with men and women serving our country in the armed forces away from home.
