Gardening the Colonial Way – Williamsburg, Virginia

What was gardening like in colonial times? Jenny, a young woman in colonial dress, takes us on a walk through her garden in Williamsburg, Virginia. Her garden includes a wide variety of vegetables, medicinal herbs and flowers, some not commonly planted today. Gravel pathways give access to all sections of the garden where plants are supported with various styles of wooden trellises, including an innovative table trellis for tomatoes. Enjoy this Williamsburg Garden Video and make plans for laying out and planting your own colonial style garden.
