The Buzz

Welcome to our Garden blog!

Yep, that's right...with our new website, we're bringing you all the latest Garden Buzz.

We'll be introducing you to the staff and showing you the Garden through our eyes. There is so much happening behind the scenes to make Memphis Botanic Garden such a beautiful place to visit, that we thought you might enjoy getting to know who and how it all happens.

You can look forward to Jim Duncan's "ride arounds," Rick Pudwell's first-hand updates on what's being planted, fun stories from our youth education staff, and more.

Hope you enjoy getting to know us, and if there are things you'd like to learn more about, email me at We'd love to hear your suggestions!

Hey I also love gardening and a friend emailed me your website. I wanted to let you know that your website seems to be showing up in Yahoo but not in Google for some things I was searching for. I created a website a few months ago and had the same issue for some reason, my site just didn't show up in google until I used one of those search engine submitter things. Once I did that it showed up and now I get a bunch of people visiting my site. Anyways I just thought I would let you know about that. If you want me to look up the name of the website I used for the search engine submitter, email me back and I will look through my old emails and see if I can find it for you. Have a great day! <3 Sarah
