Parks and Gardens UK is Britain’s leading on-line resource for historic parks and gardens. It provides freely accessible, accurate and inspiring information on UK parks, gardens and designed landscapes – and now it includes an interesting blog covering anything and everything to do with historic parks and gardens. The blog tries to be a mix of both serious and whimsical and is a wonderful opportunity to follow all those leads that one normally has to put aside as ‘not relevant’ to the task in hand!
Recent posts have included Gardeners on Desert Island Discs; Mechanical elephants; Royal menageries; Cemetery design; The first TV gardener; Derry and Toms roof gardens; Humphry Repton and several surprises in Southend!
It comes out about once a week, and if you go to Parks and Gardens UK, scroll to the bottom of the page, enter your email address and press Follow….. these blogs will arrive painlessly in your email without any further effort on your part – apart from reading them!
