You'll have to think big when visiting the gardens on the campus of the University of Fairbanks. Perched on a slope below the university, the garden is a northern oasis of flowers, trees, shrubs, herbs, and whimsical features. Ever wondered what would happen if your garden had non-stop sunlight during the growing season? This is your chance to see what’s possible as you view everything from 50-pound cabbages to pansies the size of small children. On the other end of the scale, there are also dwarf species, specially adapted to the harsh Arctic climate. This peaceful sanctuary boasts an impressive collection of some of Alaska's 3,000 varieties of flowers, vegetables, and herbs.
