10. I can't remember if they were well marked

at the New Jersey Duke Gardens, but I do recall that the guides were wonderfully informative. I thought I heard that the gardens in NJ had closed after Doris Duke passed away. What a shame! They were really beautiful.

I always appreciate it when gardens do mark the plants with the common name and the Latin name. I have to give Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts kudos for this; they're very careful about labeling everything in their very large herb garden and having historical interpreters on hand at the kitchen garden who really know their stuff. It's so much more pleasurable when I know what I'm looking at.
