Troy B. Marden, Garden Writer, Photographer, Designer and co-host of "Volunteer Gardener" joins us to chat about the 

Nashville Music Garden

The seed for the idea of the 2,700-square-foot public Nashvill Music garden was planted when country music legend Barbara Mandrell gave her namesake rose to her friend, Pat Bullard, a LifeWorks Foundation Trustee, who recognized it as a way to acknowledge the music and artists synonymous with Nashville and also to beautify Music City. In her research, she found that over three dozen roses were named for Nashville artists, songs or industry leaders. These include Minnie Pearl (1981), Barbara Mandrell (1990), Brenda Lee (Williams Variety 1991) and Pam Tillis (2003), but the “celebrity roses” had never before been housed together in one garden for the public to view.
