Language of Materials



The arrangement of documents in this collection follows the original arrangement of the files as received for archiving, beginning with files on individual DBG gardens arranged in alphabetical order by garden. Most of the correspondence, organized by date, is in a separate record group labeled General Correspondence, but some memos and other correspondence related to particular individual gardens remain with the files on those gardens. Miscellaneous brochures, photographs and pest control records make up the rest of the collection.
