In this episode of Garden Travels, Dave journeys to Chicago to talk with Jean Rothert who showed Dave many of the innovative ideas for making gardening fun and easy for everyone, regardless of physical limitations. The Enabling Garden highlights interesting ideas that can be adapted to any garden like the space saving ideas of vertical wall gardens and hanging baskets. The garden engages all the senses with colorful flowers and bold foliage, fragrance, and splashing water. Next in this episode experience and enjoy beautiful butterflies as living color in our gardens. You can come up close and personal with dozens of native North American butterfly species in a unique walk-through garden exhibit at The Living Desert. A lush garden of flowers bloom along winding paths as you hear the burbling of fountains and see the butterflies flutter freely within the enclosure. Dave’s favorites in this episode include: Abutilon Flowering Maple and Farfugium Leopard Plant.
