"Plantations’ Herb Garden is, I think, second to none."
"I really like the Herb Garden. I think when people get to read a plant’s story, they do form a relationship with that plant—as opposed to simply remembering a Latin name."
"The Herb Garden and the Young Garden are planted intensely and with lots of variety in a small area. There’s great impact and color throughout the season. Anytime you visit, there’s a lot going on."
"The Groundcover Collection is a beautiful, quiet, contemplative, shady area."
"Some people walk through every day, which fortifies my belief that it’s a beautiful place. Nature is the predominant force here. "
"With all the different cultivars planted here, I can look at the whole range of them when I’m considering what to plant. The variety here is really just amazing."
"Plantations is a really top notch botanical garden that is a hidden treasure on campus."
"I actually tell students all the time, “If you’re sick of just reading your book at Mann Library, take a walk and check out the rhodies on Comstock Knoll or the Herb Garden.”"
