Inscription.  The cutting garden functions as it did during Marjorie Post's residency at Hillwood. The plantings include snapdragons, chrysanthemums, and other classics of 1950s and 1960s floral design, along with modern varieties of cut flowers introduced since Post's time. For much of the year, the cutting garden provides nearly all the flowers needed for the arrangements displayed in the mansion and other buildings across Hillwood.
