Gardening With Gutner: Mount Auburn Cemetery

BOSTON (CBS) – There’s a hidden gem on the Cambridge-Watertown line that’s home to some of the tallest trees in the state.

It’s Mount Auburn Cemetery, the second oldest public garden in the nation. It turns 180 years old this year.

“We have plants from around the world, some actually pre-dating the founding of the cemetery,” Dennis Collins, the cemetery’s horticultural curator, told WBZ-TV.

You’ll find thousands of plants and trees across the site’s 175 acres.

Collins said 250,000 visitors come to the cemetery each year, from school groups to garden clubs, plant societies and bird watchers.
