Connie Cottingham and Mike Sikes’ garden is every plant collector’s fantasy. Each of their lifetime garden adventures are intertwined in their eclectic Athens Georgia garden.
Connie is a landscape architect and a garden travel writer. She has gardened in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Georgia. Her weekly garden plants and advice email ‘Love Notes From the Garden’ are short, humorous, and informative.
Mike is a horticulturist who is Georgia through and through. His garden world has included owning and operating retail garden centers, hosting a garden radio talk show, assisting with new plant introductions, and serving as President of the Georgia Master Gardeners.
Together Connie and Mike offer talks and landscape consultations between discovering a new public garden.
