Chicago Garden Walks 2013

There have been a number of changes to the garden blogger in Chicago landscape (heh) in the last few years.  Seven years ago you could count the number of garden blogs written in the City and suburbs in one hand. Today, you couldn't count all of the blogs with both hands. Of course, not all of them are active, and this blogroll doesn't include all of the blog that may be out there, but we do list most. 

In the past two years we have lost some members to different cities, and we have gained several new garden blogs too. Take a virtual garden walk throughout the Chicagoland area and visit one of the many blogs now listed at and introduce yourself and your blog.

If you're in the mood for some real garden walks in Chicago, here is a sampling of what's coming up this season.
