The Rob Branch Garden
The October 1967 issue of Principes (now PALMS) introduced a new feature entitled “Garden Tour.” The inaugural garden was Madam Ganna Walska’s “Lotusland.” Over fifty years later, private garden tours remain an exclusive and cherished perk for our members.
During the 2021 IPS interim meeting, attendees were fortunate to be treated to superb private garden tours in greater Sarasota, Florida. This month, we have photos from the tour of Rob Branch’s garden.
