From the Editor

The upper Midwest is rich in resources. We have fertile soil, mighty rivers and lakes, and glorious native plants. Our climate accommodates a wide range of crops and, while we may not have mountains, we enjoy glorious sunsets.

We also have world-class commercial resources. Among them are the region’s excellent garden centers, nurseries, landscaping services and public gardens.

But where are these valuable resources, you ask, and how can I find them?

To answer these important questions, Chicagoland Gardening publishes a Resource Guide every year that we include as a free bonus within the March-April issue. Of course you want to know where to go to buy the newest, best plants for your garden, but the Guide will also tell you where you can buy tools, find someone to design your garden, hire a florist and buy gifts. There’s a special section devoted to arboretums and – glory be – maps and even an index. Want to make a day of it and visit garden centers in a particular area? The handy dandy Trip Planner is there to help.
