Without a doubt, Chanticleer Garden is the finest public garden I have ever roamed. How fortunate that I live only 20 minutes away and can frequently savor their inspired horticultural displays. Chanticleer was on the Perennial Plant Symposium tour last week and I’m sure that jaws were dropping by the score as they toured the grounds. My twenty minute talk (condensed into 10 as I was pushing into the first coffee break) at Tuesday’s plenary session was well received by at least one blogger, Kevin Neal. Thanks for the good press, Kevin!
