Jim Crockett Memorial Garden

A fine addition to the Elm Bank Horticultural Center, the Jim Crockett Memorial Garden was dedicated in a formal ceremony on Saturday, June 11, 2005. Crockett, the famed first host of WGBH’s The Victory Garden and author of myriad books, fostered a true love of gardening with his “learn as you grow” approach. The garden features poppies from the Victory Garden’s Oriental Poppy colony and UMASS-Amherst Professor Thomas Boyles’ new cultivar variety Boltonia asteroides,‘ Jim Crockett’ , which has small mauve daisy-shaped blooms and blue-green foliage. The hardscape is incorporated into a creative landscape design, and includes granite memorial benches with unique tributes and herringbone brick pathways.
