The gardens were a source of pride for Martha Turnbull. There are 18 acres of gardens and they are well known for their variety and refined plant collections. Martha had a diary where she recorded the happenings of her garden. A lot of the plants that she introduced to the garden are still alive today. This was another area where there were a lot of slaves working.
Cotton was not the only thing that was in the fields at Rosedown. There was also cattle, agriculture, fodder crops, poultry, horses, and other farm animals. Along with all the living quarters for the slaves that lived and worked there. Today, all the slave living quarters are gone but the main house and gardens still stand.
