WYCK HOUSE GARDENING PROJECT - PLANTING BOXWOOD PARTERRES
10:00am‒1pm
Wyck has continuously preserved the oldest rose garden in the U.S. since 1824. A key architectural element of the beloved garden has long been its boxwood hedging. Unfortunately, the boxwoods were lost to general decline in recent years. With help, Wyck aspires to re-plant the boxwood parterres with improved, disease resistant varieties.
