Erie Basin Marina Gardens

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

The Gardens at the Erie Basin Marina serve two purposes. The first is to provide a beautiful place for Buffaloians to enjoy. The second is we are a University Trial Garden. Each year we trial the newest varieties of specialty annuals from around the world, and put perennials to the test to find those that can stand up to Buffalo's extreme climate. We establish which plants will work best in our climate zone, and provide a great source for gardeners and local growers so that we as a region can make better choices in the garden. At the marina we grow our flowers in flower beds, and in 32" planters with growing media for optimum growth. This allows more space for us to trial a wider variety of plant material.

Specialty annuals are hybridized for specific uses, like container gardening, and for particular landscape uses. They are also hybridized to perform certain growth habits, for example height, flower production, and color, disease resistance, and many more characteristics.

The plants we trial come from horticultural companies located all over the world. Four of which are some of the largest.

Our friendly staff is always on hand to answer any horticultural questions you may have. You can find us in the garden Monday through Friday during regular work hours.

The Erie Basin Marina is a wonderful spot to come and hang out when the weather is nice here in Buffalo. There is always something beautiful see. The gardens are just one of its loveliest assets.
