Mr. Cason's Vegetable Garden
It's charm is irresistible with rows of vegetables and flowers that paint this 7.5-acre demonstration garden in glorious color. An impressive herb garden fills the air with a subtle aroma. For more than a decade this has been the southern filming site of the PBS series The Victory Garden.
* The garden won't have much growing, since it is February.

The beauty of the plants and flowers here is unsurpassed. Any time of the year a stroll through this unique complex takes you along paths of native and exotic plant displays. Even those without a green thumb find the beauty and variety astonishing.
