Morven’s Horticulturists Louise Senior and Charlie Thomforde present an entertaining and educational visual tour of Morven’s Victorian-themed gardens, their histories, tools, techniques, and plants of the Era (Jun 20, 1837 – Jan 22, 1901), a time many consider the “Golden Age of Horticulture.”

This time period saw plant explorers introducing new and exotic annuals, perennials, shrubs, trees and vines into the marketplace, as well as the early days of lawnmowers, glass houses, and even the glass cucumber straightener!
