According to Wilhelmina, “We were delighted to see they had discovered the base of the beautiful marble crater fountain in a small pool in the garden area on the south side of the swimming pool where the crater had been originally located. We had admired the fountain on a previous trip, for it had been found earlier, in the rear portico of the villa where it had been stored, possibly after the earthquake.”
See Jashemski, W.F., 2014. Discovering the Gardens of Pompeii: Memoirs of a Garden Archaeologist, (p.263).
According to Wilhelmina, “the base of the large crater fountain was found in fragments in passage 53, where it had been stored at the time of the eruption”.

According to Wilhelmina, “Those behind statue base one, two, four and five, counting from the south were of large trees.

Behind statue base six, the root cavity was identified as an oleander.”

According to Wilhelmina “We also spent considerable time working in the south-east peristyle garden

We had previously (see 1977 excavations) found two rows of roots near the columns of the portico that enclosed three sides of the garden.

When we cleaned the lapilli from the root cavities, we found that in many of the locations the plants had been started in pots with four holes, similar to the ones found in several gardens at Pompeii.

In 1978, when we carefully removed the soil around each pot, we found why we had not found many of the pots previously: the cavity did not come into contact with the pot. The pots appeared to have been broken before the plants were placed in the ground, and part or all of some of the pots had apparently dropped off before planting, and that was why not all the fragments were found in each location.

 

Most surprising this year was the discovery of a second pot in almost every location in the inner row next to the columns.

The pots were not placed with their bases standing firmly in the ground, as were the first pots, but were placed somewhat aslant, each one pointing towards a column.

Our first explanation was that these pots had contained plants that were no longer growing at the time of the eruption, for we found no root cavities filled with lapilli.

But when we removed the intact pots still full of soil, we discovered in each of them, at opposite edges of the rim, two tiny root cavities that reached to the bottom of the pot.

 

The experts agreed that the fact they had been started in pots pointed to the fact they were evergreen, and the root cavities may indeed have been lemons, or citrons, which would have been transported in pots with four holes as breathing holes for their roots.

The size of the root cavities indicated that the plants would have been started after the earthquake of AD62.

The villa had suffered severe earthquake damage, and was still in the process of being rebuilt, but the ancient owners had given the highest priority to the replanting of their garden.

 

The problem of identifying the plants grown in the second pot found in front of almost every column in the row next to the portico, is also difficult to solve.

The small size of the cavities and the fact that these pots pointed towards the columns suggest that a climbing plant had been trained onto the columns.

The ancient Romans had few climbing ornamental plants, but Ivy was widely used. Perhaps in this villa ivy was trained between the columns forming living garlands.”

Oplontis, May 2011. Area 59, the south-east peristyle. Looking north along west portico, with terracotta pots planted with Ivy. These terracotta pots have been replanted in exactly the same place as Wilhelmina Jashemski discovered original pots buried in the soil. (See Jashemski Excavations, 1978)
She thought the pots may have been planted there to encourage climbers to grow up the columns. She thought Ivy was the most probable plant, as Roman gardeners did not have a great choice of climbers. Photo courtesy of Michael Binns.
