The weather forecast for the weekend is good, the fear of a freeze is behind us and we've got a local AT gardening contest in the works: this may be the perfect time to get going on your outside space, flower box to full yard. If you need a bit of inspiration,why not give Lurie Garden at Millennium Park a try? Free, downloadable MP3 Audio tours are available here, just grab your iPod and go.
If you prefer a tour with a live guide, volunteer Master Gardeners give tours every other Sunday. You'll get the lowdown on the Chicago symbolism in the design and info on which plants will do well in your home garden.
To get the scoop about which plants were chosen by the experts that would work at home, this section of the site is full of good details organized by photo. Pick a plant you like and click to find out more.
