THE HISTORIC GARDENER –  Making Garden History fun!

GEORGIAN GARDENER – Mike Brown

The Georgian Gardener will provide a fascinating insight into the plants and gardens of bygone times. Whether you wanted to appear more beautiful, relieve pain, improve a meal or kill a few rats, there were plants for every need.

With the largest collection of replica Georgian gardening tools in the country, I provide a display of tools, plants and the uses of plants; I can even demonstrate the use of the tools on your own site.

If you wish I can be a ‘Landskip’ Gardener and survey your garden and set it out in the latest fashion with the help of the children.

Learn:-

  • About the gardening methods off the Georgian period.
  • How gardens changed during the Georgian periods.
  • The features you would find in a Georgian garden.
  • About the life of a Georgian gardener.
  • Why do some people call ‘Capability Brown’ a vandal.
  • How to keep up with the neighbour’s garden.
  • How to save money by not going to the expensive apothecary or doctor to cure your ills.
