Garden Bloggers’ Posts on Buffalo gardens…

 “We all know I love buildings, but in Buffalo I swooned.” – Susan Cohan, NJ, Miss Rumphius’ Rules

“Who knew that Buffalonians were so serious about gardening?” – Helen Battersby, Toronto Gardens 

“Greetings from Buffalo, one of the best-kept secrets among garden cities in the country!”
Susan Reimer, The Baltimore Sun

“There is an energy surrounding Buffalo which is palpable to gardeners in particular.” – Layanee, RI, Ledge and Gardens

“One of the richest cities in America at the turn of the 20th century, Buffalo has Frederick Law Olmstead-designed parks and Frank Lloyd Wright-designed buildings to spare, as well as charming neighborhoods and the most attractive housing stock of any city I’ve ever visited.  Getting “oohs” and “aahs” out of even jaded gardeners in the midst of this 18-carat setting would probably not be hard under any circumstances.  But Buffalo’s gardeners are an amazingly high-spirited, playful, and brave group.  One of my favorite gardens cheekily mixed a David, a Diana, a stone Buddha, and a big honking garden gnome. – Michele Owens, Saratoga Springs, Garden Rant
