A Different Garden Tour of Philadelphia Gardens from The New York Times

As a follow-up to my posts about visiting gardens in Philadelphia over Memorial Day weekend, I was intrigued to see Judith Dobrzynski's article in The New York Times about her own Philadelphia garden tour. In her article "Philadelphia's Gardens of Delight" from June 5th, she visited four gardens, including two I recently visited, Chanticleer and Scott Arboretum at Swarthmore. She also visited Jenkins Arboretum (featuring azaleas and rhododendrons that I have not yet visited) and Bartram's Garden (which I have visited, but is unfortunately in a very rough part of town). Ms. Dobrzynski needs to add Morris Arboretum and Linden Hill Nursery to her next visit.

For the full article, including slide show, click here. She concludes: "An overview of gardens open to the public in the Philadelphia area is at http://www.greaterphiladelphiagardens.org/."
