Episode Notes

When traveling to a new place, taking time to see a beautifully designed garden is always time well spent for the garden enthusiast. Public gardens are not only impressive, they can serve as inspiration for garden design elements to incorporate in your own garden and landscape.

Many gardens are located near historical sites or have simply been around for generations and worth visiting while in the area. Whether traveling internationally or somewhere in the States, there is a likely a public garden near your destination.

On this #plantchat episode, we're joined by the Jim Peterson, the publisher and owner of Garden Design magazine which has transitioned into an online publication, The site was created to be an online resource for homeowners and gardeners looking for garden design tips, information about plants, how to's and more. With so much great content that is well organized and easy to use, it's no wonder why the free site gets over 6 million visitors each year.

Based in Southern California, we're we thrilled to welcome Jim in the Corona office for an in-studio visit recently, to discuss the latest addition to the website, Self-Guided Garden Day Trips and International Garden Tours.
