A favorite hobby of many Missoula residents is enhancing the beauty of the valley by creating artistic garden-scapes. Gardening can prove difficult with our short growing season due to the dry climate, quick changing weather, and low humidity, but there are still many options for the beginner or experienced garden enthusiast. Many flowers, native plants and shrubs thrive in the Missoula area and make for a beautiful garden and yard. The Missoula County Extension Office offers classes on weed management, horticulture and pest management and can answer questions on gardening and landscaping.
