In 1710 the "convenient" kitchen garden ordered to be laid out at the Governor's Palace was a typical development of the 18th century; two gardens at that period being considered indispensable, a "pleasure" garden and a garden of vegetables and herbs for use. Both kitchen gardens as well as pleasure gardens were arranged formally and carefully. Herbs, seasonings, and medicinal plants were used to make borders and the vegetables grown in beds as well-arranged and studied as flower beds.
