A number of gardens - Polynesian, Renaissance, herb, English, and so on - comprise the main exhibit of this pavilion, which is sponsored by a new corporation that sells "packaged gardens," i.e., garden designs custom-fitted to the client's requirements. The tiny pavilion, which is in the style of a contemporary Southern plantation, was designed by noted architect Edward Durell Stone, and the exhibit gardens are by his son, Edward Jr. The company's line of gourmet foods - Hawaiian coffee, Swedish pancake flour, exotic jams and jellies - is on sale in the pavilion.
* Admission: 60 cents; children 25 cents.
