Seed Saving and Heirloom Gardening at the Wylie House

Wylie Garden

Wylie House is an historic house museum recreating and interpreting the Wylie home of the 1840s. We have extended our work to the grounds surrounding the house and grow and save seed from heirloom flowers and vegetables. We have a full time Outdoor Interpreter who is responsible for planning the garden and overseeing the work of local gardeners who volunteer here. While we don't know the exact varieties that the Andrew Wylie family grew, the seeds we select to grow are all heirloom varieties that were grown in this area prior to 1875. We welcome your questions, support, and participation!
