Herb Garden

Spice up your visit.

This grand garden space combines a love of history with period-accurate sensory details—which is an age-old recipe for a good time.

The area is laid out as a formal knot garden, just like you’d see in England, and is home to over 3,500 herbs and plants, spread through several themed sections:

  • The fragrance garden
  • The trial and cutting garden
  • The dye garden
  • The historic rose garden
  • The culinary garden
  • The medicinal garden
  • The terrace garden
  • The edible flower garden

The historic rose walk invites you on a journey through time, with a collection of antique roses that were in existence before 1867. And while you’re here, make sure to stop by the English-made sundial that dates back to 1795. Our Herb Garden is heralded as one of the most significant in America, and your visit will immerse you in the timeless beauty and utility of the natural world.
