Doing research for historical novel
I am researching gardens that took place in Texas,-- Gonzales county and probably Harris county, 1850. What roses, other landscaping flowers and veggies would they most likely have in their garden? I recently published the first novel, and I concentrated mostly on roses for my character. But now writing sequel and want to keep things fairly accurate. These characters are going to be vegetable and flower gardening. Any information you all could offer would be greatly appreciated. If you know any seed companies they would likely have used etc.I would be ever so grateful!
Thank you so much!
