Public Gardens Where You Can See Vegetables & Herbs


In public gardens, inspiration grows. These places offer a wealth of botanical information and ideas that you can take home and translate to your own space. We’ve pulled together a list of public gardens in the continental U.S. where you can see vegetables and herbs. Click on the map below to find public gardens in your area or in an area in which you’re traveling.
