KAYSVILLE -- The new ornamental grass garden will be on display at the Utah State University Botanical Garden Center open house.

The open house, free to the public, will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. today at the center gardens, 725 Sego Lily Drive, in Kaysville.

The open house is being held in conjunction with the USU garden's weekly farmers' market.

At the open house, master gardeners will be available to provide the public with gardening tips, said Britney Hunter, a member of the USU Horticulture Extension faculty.

The gardens have an arboretum, Hunter said, which has been popular with the public because of the number of residents who lost trees in the Dec. 1 hurricane-force windstorm.

The gardens also have more than 100 fruit trees.

Hunter said, "We just want people to come enjoy the facility."

Davis County Commissioner Bret Millburn said the USU garden center provides a "great resource" to the public.
