Tizer Botanical Gardens
Vegtable Garden: The best raspberry and strawberry patches in the county are right here in the gardens and if you are lucky enough you might even get to taste them. Vegetables of every kind can be found growing even in this harsh environment that usually gets less than 60 consecutive frost free days.
Rose Garden: The Rose Garden was developed in 2003 for the purpose of testing roses for Weeks Roses of California. Today, the Rose Garden is home to mostly Canadian roses.
Herb Garden: Perennial as well as annual herbs are abundant in herb garden. Medicinal, edible and tea herbs happily intermingle.
Observation Deck Wildflower Walk: Throughout most of the summer but especially in the spring, if you climb up above the Children's Garden you might be lucky enough to spot some of Montana's most amazing wildflowers from crocus, and buttercups to sugar bowls and pussy toes. While you are up there, sit a while on the observation deck and let the breeze blow your cares away.
The Children's Garden: Supervised by 6 blooming upside down trees, you can see gnomes racing on ladybugs and hear the fairies giggling as they tend their miniature gardens. Always a delight for young and old.
