Re: now Missouri Botanical Garden- dreaming of tomatoes/now Seed Savers

The Missouri Botanical Garden is well worth it. It is one of the oldest Botanical Gardens in the US. I make the trip from Quincy 2+ times a year, and wish I lived closer. Last visit was for their orchid show, and we also saw their blooming camelias in the Linnaean House - the oldest continually operating display greenhouse in the US (built 1882). It has the largest traditional Japanese Garden in the US, though I have to admit the one in Portland, OR is my personal favorite. It has a huge geodesic dome greenhouse, the Climatron, which houses their tropical plant collection. A day would be hardly time to explore the entire garden. If I lived in St. Louis, I'd be there every week. Yet as much as I love it, my heart truly belongs to the separately located "Shaw Nature Reserve" and its native plants!

Have you been there? I have wanted to make that trip for a few years,

list been there?

Who is way behind in e-mail :(

Yeah--midsummer would work for me for the same reasons...and how about
St. Louis?? The Missouri Botanical Garden is beautiful and they have
some amazing Victorian era botanical walking parks, plus for a larger
metro. area the costs are reasonable...Just a suggestion, not one I'd
offended over if others have a better idea. :-)
