Enjoy a 45-minute tour of what's in bloom in Morven’s reimagined gardens! Garden guides will share how the house and gardens evolved under each family that resided at Morven. Beginning with Annis Boudinot Stockton (18th century), Harriet Potter Stockton (19th century), and Helen Hamilton Stockton (20th century), based upon writings and journals of these women, followed by Robert Wood Johnson Jr. and Governor Walter Edge, the house and garden evolved to reflect the taste of the time. This year’s demonstration garden features historical plantings of note that are not to be missed. Space is limited. Shine only, rain cancels garden tour.
