"It's Complicated:" the garden
As Garden Variety has reported, the Meryl Streep romantic comedy It's Complicated has inspired lots of chatter among gardeners who found her character's garden too good to be true.
In fact, it is. Production designers told the Los Angeles Times that they grew the vegetables in greenhouses, dug up the best ones and planted them in the movie garden. Even the best tomatoes were chosen and then wired to the plants.
Then somebody jumped in to say that the garden in the blockbuster hit Avatar made Meryl's garden look like a weed patch.
Now Jenny Peterson, at J. Peterson Garden Design, has listed the top five movie gardens of all time on her blog. She includes Edward Scissorhands and Alice in Wonderland.
Anybody have any garden's to add?
I am afraid my favorite would have to be the ones in Enchanted April (1992) which glow by comparison to the rainy and bleak London cityscape the women leave behind.
