The View From Wits’ End
by Troy Marden - posted 01/13/14

Welcome! I am so excited to begin writing this new blog, The View From Wits' End, which will detail the goings on in my home garden, as well as introduce you to some of my favorite plants, garden products and more.  I'll also take you along with me as I travel around the country on speaking engagements and book signings, which often include visiting spectacular public and private gardens along the way and you'll have a front seat view with Garden Travelers, a garden tour company that I am now associated with, as we take groups of travelers to fabulous gardens and historic destinations around the world! (And you'll be given the opportunity to join us!)

You can also follow along with the many things I have going on by "Liking" my Facebook page at and by visiting my website at

As we kick off 2014, I hope you'll come back and visit on a regular basis. I will post something new from the garden at least once a week and I'm looking forward to hearing your feedback, reading your comments and answering your questions!  Thanks again for joining me and I hope you enjoy "The View From Wits' End"!
