This herb and flower garden, planted at the Tuck Museum, is an educational tool
representing a small kitchen garden that a woman of the 18th century would have
planted to supply her home with medicine, cosmetics, culinary and decorative items
made from the plants. We call it Mrs. Bís Garden after one of the early settler families
of Hampton - the Batchelders.
