While on vacation I managed to visit several gardens and garden centers, which should come to no surprise to anyone who knows me, at least not my family who has learned to put up with me. One of the places we went was Linden Hill Gardens in Ottsville, Pennsylvania, which was only a few minutes from my brother's house. On previous trips I was intrigued by this place because of an extremely well-done border fronting the road, but it was my loss that I never stopped here before. Linden Hill has fantastic display beds (including a deer resistant one), which were full of color, texture and surprises. One of the best things I encountered was friendly, eager and helpful staff, who did not wait for me to approach them before offering assistance. Normally when I visit another garden center I am busy checking out the selection, comparing prices, looking at signage and seeing if I can recognize who they buy from - but this was likely the first time I was too distracted to even notice such things.
If you are ever find your self anywhere near Linden Hill Gardens, I recommend stopping. Check out their web site for more information, and if you want to see the rest of my pics from this set, click here.
