The Hahn Horticulture Garden encompasses nearly six acres of teaching and display gardens on the campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. Established in 1984 by Horticulture faculty, the garden serves undergraduate students and the local community as a learning resource for plant material, landscaping concepts, and environmental awareness.
Our garden features perennial borders, water gardens, shade gardens, a meadow garden, and the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion (and plants, of course. Lots of plants.) Visit us in all seasons - to relax, enjoy, learn, and grow!

Our garden is open every day of the week from dawn 'till dusk, free of charge. The Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion is only open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
From the main entrance of Virginia Tech (Highway 460), enter on Southgate Drive, then at the second traffic circle continue left on to Duckpond Drive, then right onto Washington Street. There is a road (Garden Lane) that runs between the greenhouse complex and the garden; this brings you to the Visitor Parking area and the Peggy Lee Hahn Garden Pavilion.
IMPORTANT: To avoid tickets from VT Parking Services, be sure to pick up a Visitor's Pass from the Virginia Tech Visitor Center on Prices Fork Road (next to the Inn) if visiting on a weekday during business hours (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. M-F). If you park in the visitor's lot without a pass, you will be ticketed by Parking Services (and we are powerless to help you with it). This is not a Garden policy, rather a campus-wide policy.
