I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, and we frequently visited
The Missouri Botanical
Gardens, which is not only one of the best botanical gardens in
the country, it also maintains one of the most resourceful and
beautiful web pages of the genre.
However it wasn't until I moved to Wichita that I discovered what a
wonderful resource botanical gardens can be. Most gardens are staffed
by people who are more than happy to answer any questions you have
about your own gardening efforts. The friendly person to whom I spoke
when I called
Botanica: the Wichita Gardens advised me as to what creature was
eating my sunflowers (rabbits) and what to do about it (repellent or
soapy water). Your local botanical garden may prove to be a limitless
resource for you-I highly recommend making use of it.
