Tim Smit

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Horticulture, Gardens (descriptions, history etc)

The glorious No.1 bestseller, reissued in a sumptuous paperback edition.

Until the First World War, the estate gardens at Heligan were one of the glories of Cornwall. Thereafter, through growing neglect, they slipped gradually to sleep. This is the amazing story of their rediscovery and restoration, or the Victorian vision and ingenuity which first created that subtropical paradise, and of the modern obsession and improvisation which recreated it.
