Re: Sunken Gardens

I think a brochure is a good idea, especially if it helps visitors find something they may be looking for.

We are discussing making up brochures ( pay at the nature center, get
your money back if you return) for folks to id plants. This will be a
lot of work trying to graph out where the plants are so folks can relate
to them. If I ever get the time, we will probably do that, but can't see
that happening anytime soon.

We also loose many plants yearly too. Seems folks think that since it is
a public place, they are welcome to anything :( Some day I will catch
someone doing this and they will get fined!

I remember you mentioning that before.  I find that appalling.  Why
they just write the name down?  We've had no trouble having our
taken, though we have had a few plants taken. The Hort Ed now is
the idea of 'theming' our gardens - which means statuary.  The Patio
has been doing this with an Alice in Wonderland Theme.  On Garden Walk
they hold a Tea Party and sometimes have a rabbit for kids to pet.  So
no one has walked off with the AiW statuary, but it could happen. I
am in
the 'Propagation' Group, which I prefer to call by its original name
'Nursery' (because we do very little propagation, 95% is small plants
brought in and grown on in our nursery beds for sale).  I've thought
using Nursery Rhymes for our 6 beds. I'd like to lend my 18 inch turn
the century (19th to 20th) style cat and his fiddle to one of the
I'm afraid someone would walk off with it.

Problem we had was everyone was taking the darn labels..... whether
were just the B name or anything. Drove us nuts!


I like to see good labeling, too. Sounds like these folks went
mile. I think if a public place can only do minimal labeling it
should be
botanical names. The rest is gravy.
