Recreate Your Grandmother’s Garden

Old-fashioned gardens were sprawling collections of flowers, vines, and herbs that grew large and in abundance. Imagine such a welcoming space in your own garden.

"The old-fashioned garden! What a host of memories come sweeping back. Who of us does not instantly see the dear old place where we joyfully tripped after our grandmother as she pottered about ... What a riot of color wherever we looked." —Northrup King Catalog, 1915
