Yes, been there many years ago. I did purchase the seeds "black hollyhock " from the gift store, supposedly a flower he liked, or invented, who knows, been too many years ago. They did grow well for a few seasons.

Thomas Jefferson received a yearly shipment of as many as 700 species of seeds from the Jardin des Plantes in Paris, France.

Thomas Jefferson had systems created to collect rainwater runoff to help water his plants.
