We are participating in a new research trial at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and their Environmental Science department. The most recent of many over the last 25 years! Very exciting and looking forward to posting about it as we go along. I visited the trial site last Friday and will have lots of info going forward.

Check out our short introduction to the latest research trials at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville by their Environmental Science department. Initially they have set up 8 replicants to determine differences between growing vertical and flat orientation in our Varden Outdoor Kits.
