Perhaps it’s my Shaw neighborhood’s proximity to the Missouri Botanical Garden, or maybe it’s Tower Grove Park’s historic greenness, or the neighborhood streets lined with tall, stately trees. Whatever the reason, Shaw teems with gardeners.
A few weeks ago, a small pocket garden right around the corner from our house hosted an annual plant swap. I had a rich harvest of orange cosmos seeds from last year, so I packaged them and walked them over to the garden full of Shaw residents, swapping, exchanging, and trading plants.
