General:
The early horticulturists of California were the priests, and in the mission gardens were collected the choicest plants and fruits. Best known of these old gardens is the so-called "Sacred Garden" at Mission Santa Barbara. It is called "sacred" though it possesses no special sanctity and the brother speak of it as private, not sacred, and according to the rules of the older women may not enter it. The garden as it is today was designed and laid out in 1868 by Father Joseph O'Keefe.
