18th Century Plants for the Modern Gardener

July 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join the park Historical Horticulturist, Anna Davis, in a photographic tour of ten plants represented in our own 18th century kitchen gardens. Anna will cover what she considers most interesting about these ten plants – whether it be their lore and history, a personal connection, or an essential use. 

The plants discussed will range from herbs to ornamentals, annuals to perennials, and even a vegetable or two. Each plant will match the needs of the modern garden. In addition, she will discuss her role here at the park and provide some insight to her resources and research. Stick around after the  lecture for a brief tour of our Hibb’s House Kitchen Garden.

Consider this “pay what you wish” class as a gentle introduction to colonial gardening and an exciting way to prepare for summer. All proceeds from the Garden Days Program Series go back into the Historical Garden Program run by the non-profit Friends of Washington Crossing Park.
