CHASKA, Minn. -- This week Share Your Backyard is taking us to the MN Landscape Arboretum in Chaska. Why the Arboretum? Because many of the plants in your backyard were developed in theirs!
The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum is ranked as one of the top 12 metro area destinations for visitors by Explore Minnesota, and USA Today has ranked it as one of the top 10 places to smell the flowers. The Arboretum has been one of six featured gardens in the American Public Garden Association during their National Public Garden Day.
You don't have to be a member to enjoy free admission. Open 363 days a year, the Arboretum offers free admission for non-members every Thursday all day November through March 31, and free admission every third Thursday of the month after 4:30 April through October. You can explore the 1,137 acres of beautiful gardens while inspiring ideas for your own backyard.
Tonight, Belinda will be hosting their annual Gala in the Gardens.
