Experience the beauty of Mystic Seaport gardens as a Museum horticulturalist guides you through two re-created 19th-century gardens, as well as seven contemporary gardens. This one-hour walking tour takes you into gardens that contain hundreds of different varieties of plants that are designed to motivate and excite visitors about horticultural history and our heritage as New England gardeners. You will learn about historic plants and traditional garden practices, and visit the Children’s Zoo Garden and see plants like “elephant ears” that appeal to future gardeners.
