Jordan developed an early fascination for his garden equipment. He walked the paths for hours by himself, wheeling his wheelbarrow.

 John wheels an old orbiculare, pruned out of its spherical shape for moving, on an even older plant carrier.

Bob first transported rhododendrons (and sometimes John and his sister Nancy) on this carrier in the 1940s at their New Jersey rhododendron park. It has been in continuous use ever since.

      Trevor is one of the fourth generation to 
work in the garden.  Here he is planting
in the rich black loam that lured his great-
grandfather to move 3000 miles and start
all over when he was 51.
