Libby McMillan, Content Manager and Senior Editor for USA Today, wouldn’t reveal the number of votes the Garden received, but says: “I will tell you you’ve run a very impressive campaign!….This has been the second most popular contest in the history of Readers’ Choice, so a top ten finish is REALLY saying something! America loves its gardens more than any of us knew. ”
