Description

The productive gardens are one of the chief glories of the gardens at Heligan. Originally created to make the house they served self-sufficient they have, since their restoration under the guidance of Tim Smit and latterly Tom Petherick, literally become a seed bed of best practice, taking the best of past traditions and modern scientific knowledge. In this book he tells how the garden was run in its Victorian and Edwardian heyday and it is also packed with traditional and cutting-edge advice, hints, tips and secrets on how best to keep flowers, fruit and vegetables in good fettle. It is a must-have for any gardener.
