The Sussex Gardeners took a walking tour of the Delaware Botanic Gardens site Oct. 5. They were hosted by Greg Tepper, director of horticulture and board member for the gardens.
The Delaware Botanic Gardens at Pepper Creek is a ten-year, multiphase plan to bring a sense of place to Delmarva with a major public garden that reflects southern Delaware's unique coastal plain. Its mission is to create inspiration, educational, and sustainable gardens in Delaware for the benefit and enjoyment of residents and visitors alike. The project has already attracted luminaries such as the Dutch garden designer Piet Oudolf, the award-winning architecture firm Lake/Flato and Delaware's own Rodney Robinson, a landscape architect who has created and restored gardens throughout the state.
