Americans aren't known for gardening, and so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the founder of the Missouri Botanical Garden, Henry Shaw, was an Englishman. The English traditionally have a great love for the soil and growing things.

The Garden is open free of charge to residents of Saint Louis City and County on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.
