Garden of Ideas (Ridgefield, Connecticut)
Established in 1987, this eight-acre site is both a private garden and a specialty nursery. It contains a fine collection of both woody and herbaceous ornamental plants, planted along a stunning natural marsh filled with wild rice. The property contains a large raised-bed vegetable garden, hand-built cedar structures, whimsical statuary, water features, unusual annuals, and lots of birds and bugs.
The folder includes a worksheet, a garden plan, copies of a brochure about the garden/nursery and photocopies of articles about the garden.
