Exploring Connecticut's Historic and Public Gardens
Earlier this spring, horticulturist Charlie Nardozzi joined us on Where We Live to answer all your gardening questions and we got this comment from a listener on Facebook saying, “Loving this episode! You should do it weekly or monthly!” We hear you, listeners, so we are back with another hour on Connecticut gardening. But today, we’re exploring some of the state’s most remarkable public and historic gardens.
Caryn B. Davis is an architectural and landscape design photographer, and she is also the author of a new book entitled Connecticut Gardens: A Celebration of the State’s Historic, Public and Private Gardens. Today, she joins us to talk about the gardens around the state you’ll want to explore.
Connecticut Historic Gardens Day is coming up on June 25th. Many of Connecticut's historic houses will open their gardens to the public. We'll hear about what it takes to maintain the grounds of these places. And later, we hear what it takes to become a master gardener.
It’s a gardening hour like no other!
