United States of America -- Pennsylvania -- Montgomery -- Villanova
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, plant lists, list of pieces and sculptures with names of sculptors and historical information.
General:
Native stone walls and sandstone steps from circa 1900 can be seen in some of the twelve distinct garden areas on this three and one-third acre property. The plant selections, sculptures and ornaments in each garden room provide four seasons of interest. Contoured paths and views connect the different rooms. At the entrance to the property there is a custom made hand-forged iron gate and hollies intended to keep deer away from the gardens. A substantial gravel court with a Vermont granite millstone in its center at the front of the house opens to a four-season garden with tulips, phlox and dianthus in the spring, blooming rock garden plants and pink azaleas in summer, asters and chrysanthemums in fall, and winter interest from yellow and red twig dogwoods and witch hazels. Across the courtyard the sandstone steps lead to the woodland garden that has a stepping stone path, rhododendrons, redbud, hosta, forget-me-nots, columbine and other shade perennials. The woodlands overlook the kidney-shaped swimming pool and its plantings including shrub roses, peonies, crepe myrtles, perennials and annuals along the surrounding rail fence. A red painted concrete giant pomegranate gives the name to the pomegranate garden which has Japanese maples, willow and gold spirea.
A sunken brick patio that was original to the property has child-sized wrought iron furniture, shaped cherry trees and a bronze fox sculpture. A fish pond has been added to another sunken area with an original fieldstone wall, with plantings that include hydrangea, skimmia and witch hazel. Nearby there is a fountain garden with a painted concrete mushroom tree with skimmia, mountain laurel and daffodils planted around this water source for birds. Next to the house there is the colorful inner view garden planted with hundreds of tulips and summer annuals in colors that complement the furnishings inside. A blue atlas cedar is espaliered on the house next to the rear patio; the bed across the patio includes smoke bush, viburnum, southern magnolia, hosta and ferns. A steeply sloping bank, known as the Red Rose Inn overlook garden, has a switchback path, native trees, daffodils and other native plants to encourage wildlife and birds. The garage and greenhouse outbuilding is used for orchids and over-wintering plants, with a perennial and annuals cutting garden that includes tree peonies, calla lilies and day lilies, shasta daisies, freesia and plumbago. A butterfly garden with a custom butterfly-shaped bench includes hosta, milkweed, allium, asters and catmint.
The Gardens of Red Rose has been designated a bird habitat by Audubon at Home, with many bird feeders, the watering fountain, native plants in the hillside overlook garden, and deer fencing that encourage visiting birds and small wildlife. The Garden Conservancy, Pennsylvania Horticultural Society and the centennial celebration of the Garden Club of America have toured this garden.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. J. Kearsley Mitchell (former owners, 1911-1959); Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Wheeler (former owners, 1955-1966); Mr. and Mrs. Chiswell Perkins (former owners, 1966-1978); Walter K.

Place:
Spring Valley Farm (Benton, Pennsylvania)
Scope and Contents:
The folder includes worksheets, site plans, and additional information about the house and garden.
General:
This 50-acre Pennsylvania farm has a colorful garden with large perennial beds and borders, designed, planted and maintained by the owner. The 1803 farm house was owned by members of the Hess family from the time it was built until 1966. The property features open vistas of the fields and woodlands, and is sympathetic to the informality of the farm by incorporating wildflowers in planted beds. Two ponds on the property used for swimming and fishing also support irrigation systems for the gardens.
A split rail fence planted with day lilies borders the long gravel driveway, which leads to a shaded parking area. There are seven older outbuildings on the property; one is now used for a horticultural library. Dwarf shrubs are mixed with perennials in a 75x25 foot border, which is separated by an electric fence from horse and cattle pastures. Animal sculptures are featured in some plantings.
Persons and firms associated with the garden include Mary B. Hopkins (garden design consultant, 1966 to present); Grace Feola (student garden assistant, 1990 to present).

Scope and Contents:
The folders include worksheets, historical images and real estate records.
General:
A few evergreen trees are all that presently remain of the Homewood garden, which dated back to the 1920's. The original 223 acres of the property were purchased by Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. in 1946. A pool was added to the propery in the 1950's, with shrubs and flower beds at its edges. A split rail fence and a garden gate defined the front of the garden which featured and arbor, and roses, boxwood, peonies, and spring bulbs. Beyond the garden, a children's play area was situated next to a small orchard. In it's prime, the property was a working dairy farm and also had conformation show horses; the large stable no longer exists but the dairy barn remains standing. In 2000 the Pettibone family sold the property and the unattended home subsequently burned down in 2010.
Persons associated with the garden include Mr. and Mrs. Aldrich Dudley (former owners, 1930's-1946?); the Wyatt family (1930s-1946?), Mr. and Mrs. John Pettibone Sr. (former owners, 1946-ca. 1989?); Mr. John Pettibone Jr. (former owner, 1989-2000); and Mr. Bill Budd (grounds keeper, 1946-).

General:
Major Isaac Hite Jr., who fought with the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, and his first wife Eleanor (Nelly) Conway Madison, a sister of President James Madison, built the Federal style house beginning in 1794, using limestone quarried on the 483 acre property. The landscape plan included groves of trees for shade and was influenced by the less formal 18th century English gardens that complement rather than contrast with the natural setting. The fields would have been planted in grain for livestock, including cattle and Merino sheep. During Hite's lifetime the property was expanded to 7,500 acres and included a distillery and several mills. The house has a south façade of dressed limestone, and is in the pavilion style favored by Thomas Jefferson. There are several outbuildings. The only records of the garden show light foundation plantings around the house and a latticework fence.
During the Civil War, Belle Grove Plantation was the setting of the Battle of Cedar Creek on October 19, 1864, in which Union General Philip Sheridan defeated Confederate General Jubal Early.
The Brumback family owned the property from 1907 to 1929. Francis Welles Hunnewell purchased the property in 1929 and bequeathed it to the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1964.
In 1983, the Garden Club of Virginia voted to restore the gardens at Belle Grove Plantation, using funds raised in their annual garden walks. The gardens were restored to the style of circa 1820. University of Connecticut Professor Emeritus Rudy J. Favretti (Fellow in the American Society of Landscape Architects) designed the restoration. Restoration included pruning the trees to restore light to the house and open the view of the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains and replacing the large foundation plantings including diseased boxwoods with low-growing plants. In addition, an overgrown herb garden was converted to a demonstration garden comprised of plants used in cooking, medicine and commerce in the 19th century, with restored latticework fencing on three sides and post and rail fencing on the fourth side.
Belle Grove Plantation, now 283 acres, is operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and open to the public. Sites on the grounds include the ice house, old hall, dairy, smokehouse, blacksmiths shop, demonstration garden, slave cemetery, and agricultural fields. There is also a library of local, architectural, crafts and agricultural history, and an artifacts collection.
Persons associated with the property include Major Isaac Hite (former owner, 1794-1836) and descendents of the Hite family, the Brumback family (former owner, 1907-1929), Francis Welles Hunnewell (former owner, 1929), Rudy J. Favretti (1983, restoration landscape architect) and the National Trust for Historic Preservation (owner, 1964-present)

General:
The property has changed hands and size many times since a wooden farmhouse was built in 1845; since 1980 the current owners have developed a cottage garden on their one acre while preserving remnants of the 19th century New England farm. Historic features include an arbor with Concord grapes, European white elm planted in 1916, Northern spy apples in the fruit orchard, a patch of rhubarb, a lilac hedge planted over an old granite foundation, partial spirea hedge, fieldstone wall, a soapstone sink, a small barn used now for tool storage with a study in the old loft, and antique farm machinery displayed in a field. Contemporary additions include a colorful border with landscape roses, lilies and shrubs backed by a row of boulders that opens the garden to view from the street. In front of the house there are beds of perennials on either side of the walkway to the front door rather than lawn. Spring bulbs, ferns, herbs, milkweed and a lilac in each of four corners surround the house. New fruit trees have been planted within the historic orchard, and there is an annual neighborhood cider pressing party using an antique cider press. A screened gazebo is sited within a garden with post and rail fences bordered by the grape arbor and peony hedges and exited through a pergola covered by honeysuckle. The kitchen garden, blueberry patch and two beds of perennial flowers comprise the gazebo garden. Native wildflowers in the meadow beyond and native vines, shrubs and trees planted in the farther reaches of the property help maintain its historic character.
During the Country Estate era in the early years of the twentieth century a former owner amassed surrounding properties to the size of the original farms, about 100 acres. A manor house was built, with landscaping by Ernest W. Bowditch that included the European white elm and a defunct butternut allée on this acre. The gardens are used by the current owner, who writes a gardening column for the Boston Globe, to teach both gardening and conservation of Massachusetts heritage.
