Emily Dickinson Garden

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) spent her life at her family’s homestead in Amherst, MA. She gardened in her American Victorian era garden as passionately as she wrote poetry. The plants we offer were either referred to in her poems or are pressed in her herbarium.

She wrote of spring:

So build the hillocks gaily
Thou little spade of mine
Leaving nooks for Daisy
And for Columbine
You and I the secret
Of the Crocus know –
Let us chant it softly –
“There is no more snow!”
