Botanical gardens around the world

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.
