About National Garden Month

Why Garden?

"Because watching things grow and bloom rejuvenates the spirit and engages the mind in the wonder and diversity that exists in the world around us! Experiencing the vast variety in the plant kingdom is what gardening is all about. Additionally, in the face of continued habitat loss, conservation through horticulture is one of the ways many of the worlds most amazing species will be preserved over time."

-- Darrin Norton, Owner, Mountain Orchids
