A Dig in the Garden

Garden Design;Feb/Mar97, Vol. 16 Issue 1, p25
The article explains why a garden behind the St. George Tucker house is different from other gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia. The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation's Department of Archeological Research shows that gardening was important to Tucker, a circuit judge who bought the property in 1788. Tucker, it seems, was most interested in fruit and nut cultivation. Gardeners reinstalled a lawn and placed plants true to Tucker's period.
