Ask any horticulturist what their favorite plant is and, more often than not, they'll respond, “That's not fair; there are too many!”. That's actually an incredibly reasonable point, and we're not here to argue with it. Rather than limiting ourselves by playing favorites, let's see if our Horticulture crew can give us a list of “Top Plant Picks” so we can see which of our wonderful plants are capturing their attention and performing well in the garden right now. Join us this month as our Research Technician, Tim, breaks out his encyclopedic knowledge of all the plants in our garden and shows you his top plant picks for the month of January!
