About Heritage Flower Gardens c. 1900-1920
Are you wondering what the benefit of heirloom seeds is? Bob Wildfong has been saving seeds and teaching about food biodiversity for over 20 years. As the Horticultural Specialist at the Waterloo Region Museum, he cares for the gardens in Doon Heritage Village that feature over 200 species of heritage plants. Bob is also the Executive Director of Seeds of Diversity, an organization that conserves Canadian heritage seeds and plants from coast to coast. With the video below, join Bob for a trip back in time to the flower gardens of the early 1900s. Beautiful, fragrant and full of colour, the annuals and perennials of a century ago were treasured and shared by gardeners of all ages. Learn how to give your garden an authentic "old-fashioned" look by choosing the plants, forms and colour palettes that were popular in our great-grandparents' day.
