Where Are the Gardens?
We are leaving Northern Illinois for the Denver area. I have a huge perennial garden and my passion is (over 500) hosta and Japanese Maples! I am told to forget it - they won't survive anywhere in CO. I keep hearing however that there are 'microclimates'. I'd give anything to be able to find an already-established garden and to me that means a pretty old house - took me 22 years to get this one right. Does anyone out there know where 'stuff' will grow? Do I neeed to be as 'low' as possible? Daughter is in Boulder, son in Longmont and would love to be near them. I need a realtor who specializes in houses with gardens but I'm told I won't find a garden!
