A New Wave of Delaware Gardens

In October 2015, I was privileged to tour the future site of the Delaware Botanic Gardens (DBG) in Dagsboro, Delaware with then-Director of Horticulture Gregg Tepper and several board members. The big news, aside from the recently acquired site itself, was that world-famous garden designer Piet Oudolf had just signed on to design their meadow garden. I wrote about this exciting development in an exciting project for my blog in Big News in Southern Delaware. Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to revisit that project, and came away exhilarated and energized.
