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.
