This conference at Mount Vernon will examine, discuss and evaluate a wide variety of topics -- starting below ground with appropriate 18th-century bulbs and the search for lost gardens, moving to gardening under cover and specialized structures for maintaining plants throughout the winter, then to the trans-Atlantic exchange of seed and their frontier stories, and finally gardens of 18th-century Virginia. This conference offers a broad scope of historic garden and landscape topics and will prove to be intellectually stimulating and a most enjoyable conference for all.
