  2. Spring is Here and it’s time to start the planting my home garden.
    The NY Botanical Garden is the perfect place for my husband I to visit each Spring especially the Perennial Garden and Ladies’ Border to focus on the plants and flowers that are currently in season and bring the inspiration into my own garden. We enjoy seeing the different arrangements of plants and how strategically they are placed. Thank you for labeling the plants so we can visit a nursery and purchase them. A wonderful place to get outside and learn about planting for beginners and experts.
