Gardens and Plants of Colonial America

American colonists planted kitchen gardens out of necessity. Their very survival depended on the food that their simple gardens could provide. Later farms and large plantations were established, and crops exported. Flower gardens arose after necessities were met. Several elaborate gardens from the colonial period still exist or have been recreated. This presentation includes the period from 1600 to 1775 and explores plants the colonists grew as well as the grand gardens of that period.
