Re: Botanical Gardens


Cathy, go to www.aabga.org

That's the site of the American Association of Botanical Gardens and Arboreta. You can search the site by state. These are all public gardens/arboreta that are members of aabga. "Public gardens" in this context means gardens open to the public, not necessarily publicly owned gardens [Calloway, for example, is a member].

Also, there's a book [directory] that is somewhat more comprehensive, in that it includes non-aabga member gardens as well. I have one somewhere [can't find it right now], but it's an old edition anyway and is probably long out of date. But back in the days before Google, I carried this book in the same bag with my AAA Tour Guides whenever I went anywhere. Probably still would, if I could find it :>)

Another useful list is the AHS directory of reciprocal botanic gardens--those where membership in one grants entry to others. I get one of these every year when I re-up my membership at Selby. It's another publication that belongs in the bag with the AAA Tour Guides--which, incidentally, also have rather good information on public and private gardens of all types.

Does anyone know of a directory (tour guide) of public botanical and/or private gardens open to the public that the traveling gardener might use? So often I have been in a town and only much later realized that there was a garden worth seeing and missed.

Excellent advice. Boyce Thompson Southwest Arboretum is a treasure. There is also a botanical garden down near Tucson that is quite good. Can't remember the name ;>)

Be sure to go to the Boyce Thompson Southwest Arboretum about an hour or so
east of Phoenix if you have the time. One of my favorite places in the
