Listen up. Garden History Matters. It does and these are. The aim and hope of this blog is to 'up' the profile of this fascinating and diverse subject. And along the way to share some of the remarkable, quirky, bizarre and human stories that make garden history so enjoyable.

Pretty Walled Gardens
I am a big fan of walled gardens (if anyone has one they don't want, just let me know) and Nanette Watson on her blog Houses with History has posted Walled Gardens which has some very attractive photos of different uses of walled gardens.
I wholeheartedly agree. Personal favourites are the immaculately kept walled garden at West Dean near Chichester, and the roses in the walled garden at Mottisfont near Romsey early on a June morning are just sublime!ReplyDelete
I just found your blog on garden history. Keep up the good work. Will come back regularly. Your words on the walled garden reminded me of a garden I I love: the walled kitchen garden at Mount Vernon, Washington's garden. beautiful.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the kind words regarding my blog Walled Gardens. History and Gardens really do go together. My blog on Washington's Mount Vernon has some garden photos as well. Alas, I may be an older woman, but I'm still a young gardener.
