Marjorie Merriweather Post loved displaying fresh cut flowers throughout her home. This tradition continues today as the cutting garden produces nearly 1,000 stems a week during the height of summer. From sunflowers and zinnias, to eucalyptus and lisianthus, a weekly harvest supplies a bounty of flowers which are used in arrangements throughout the property. Tour the garden in all its glory and learn a few tips and secrets from a Hillwood gardener along the way.
