Field Trip : The Delaware Center for Horticulture

Delaware Center for Horticulture

Just ten minutes away from our home is a little jewel of a garden at the Delaware Center for Horticulture, in Wilmington, Delaware. Open to the public, this garden exemplifies green growing practices and shows how you can make a little space seem large. Come along for a quick tour of the grounds. Keep in mind this is August and we have had a very dry summer. Even so, you’ll see how much colorful plant life is still thriving in this tiny oasis in the city.
