Jim and Joe visit several.
Jim and Joe next visit THE JAPANESE GARDEN OR SEIWA-EN, A GARDEN OF PURE, CLEAR HARMONY AND PEACE. This is one of Jim's favorite gardens if not his favorite. Jim thinks this garden is always interesting, it's always beautiful. Jim believes that the Camellia story says a lot. He believes that gardeners need to push the envelop a little. PLANTS ARE FORGIVING. Work with them, try new things. Jim believes that this will increase ones gardening pleasure, making gardening a more enjoyable pastime. He always says - "nothing ventured, nothing gained." Jim Cocos is the Vice President of Horticulture at the Missouri Botanical Garden. His interest in horticulture started as a little guy at home with his dad and vegetable gardening. He went to the University of Missouri, got a degree in horticulture, had his own business for a number of years in the landscape contracting business, went to Savannah, Georgia as the city horticulturist and was fortunate to be able to come back here in this position. Jim didn't spend time here as a child but his grandfather worked here in the 40's and 50's. His grandfather taught Jim's father the tricks of gardening and Jim's father then passed them on to Jim. And, here he is today. He realizes every morning how fortunate he is to be in this environment and looks forward to coming to work each morning. THERE ARE MANY WAYS FOR VISITORS OF THE MISSOURI BOTANICAL GARDEN TO GET IDEAS AND INSPIRATION. The Kemper Demonstration Garden is one area. There are 23 home demonstration gardens and their purpose is to show home gardeners different gardening ideas which in turn will provide inspiration for their home gardens. Jim and Joe visit several. Jim believes that it's a subtle thing. Jim has some planted outside his office and he's noticed as guests walk by they will stop in their tracks to figure out what is creating the wonderful aroma. Jim and Joe next visit THE JAPANESE GARDEN OR SEIWA-EN, A GARDEN OF PURE, CLEAR HARMONY AND PEACE. This is one of Jim's favorite gardens if not his favorite. Jim thinks this garden is always interesting, it's always beautiful. Joe and Jim have a tough time choosing favorites because they have over 1,000 in here but Arum italicum is a good one. Jim likes a Missouri native Packera aureac Golden ragwort. It has bright yellow flowers that will really light up dark places in your yard. Woodland Garden Factsheet Woody Plants Jim opines - one of the things a gardener must understand is that sometimes conditions change in a garden. Jim shows Joe some plants that just a few years ago he would never have dreamed would have grown in St. Louis. For example, Camellia japonica 'April Tryst' a few years ago would not have been grown outside here. But because of good plant breeding they now have several varieties of Camellias that they're now trying and they're doing well. In fact several weeks ago it was full of blooms. Jim believes that the Camellia story says a lot. He believes that gardeners need to push the envelop a little. PLANTS ARE FORGIVING. Work with them, try new things. Jim believes that this will increase ones gardening pleasure, making gardening a more enjoyable pastime. He always says - "nothing ventured, nothing gained." Joe thanks Jim for his time and the tour, This has been a most enjoyable and beautiful garden tour.

"He was in St. Louis in the right business at the right time, because this was the jumping-off place before settlers went west and Shaw was in the hardware business," said Jim Cocos, operation manager, Missouri Botanical Garden."Shaw retired at 39, with his fortune amassed, as well as owning hundreds of acres in the area," Cocos continued."There are some very renown scientist that work here doing very deep botany all around the world, from Central America to Madagascar to Africa, mainly in those hot zones, where there is so much biodiversity," Cocos said.The Garden has more than 5 million specimens in its database."If you are a botanist, that definitely makes you go ooh and ah," Cocos added.We really want to thank Jim Cocos and his staff."
