If you are from Minnesota you have probably heard of Bergeson Nursery. It is a wonderful place in the middle of nowhere near Fertile Minnesota.
I have been there before and I am always amazed at the gardens.
This was one of my favorite flower beds. Parsley, Red Celosia and Vertigo Grass. There was another non descript plant along the bottom but the Parsley overshadowed it.
Mother of Pearl Rose
Sunshine Daydream Rose bud
Sunshine Dream…I give this one high marks…it had great foliage and beautiful blooms! That and yellow is my favorite flower color.
They have more roses than other years. They also have trial beds of petunias and containers filled with flowers everywhere high and low.
It is fun to see what is looking good in Minnesota in August…if it looks good then you have it made! The Bergeson family takes great pride in their gardens as they should!
Since my background is in horticulture I enjoyed seeing all the new cultivars. Most everything is well marked and a map of the gardens is available for self tours.
There was a very nice gentleman there who I believe is the new owner who has taken the reins from his brother who is running for political office…he is running for State Representative District 1B….not our district but if he is as hard working for the people of Minnesota as he was in the Nursery Business then he would get my vote.
It was a fun afternoon!
