According to Jashemski, when she examined the garden which lay across the rear of the house in 1966, she discovered it was badly damaged and full of backfill.

They still managed to find a few scattered root cavities, and also a planting pot buried in the soil.

The pot had a large hole 4cm in diameter in the bottom and 4 holes about 1,5cm in diameter on the sides. The preserved height was 12 cm.

Initially, according to Wilhelmina, this garden yielded important results.

They found a few root cavities, as well as her first discovery of an ancient planting pot.

It was found buried in the soil about three and a half feet from the south and west walls.

I.11.14 Pompeii. 1966. Planting pot.

It had a large hole 4cm in diameter in its base, and 4 holes about 1,5cm in diameter on the sides. 

It looked somewhat like a flower-pot, but its sides curved in at the top, not straight like modern flower-pots.

The preserved height was 12 cm (5 inches).

As they continued their excavations, they found most of the garden had been overgrown with large  bushes, which had destroyed the ancient root cavities. So they returned to one of the other garden areas. Photo by Stanley A. Jashemski.
