We are delighted that our small inner - city garden at 28 Kensington Road, Bristol, U.K. is featured in this lavishly illustrated book that has recently been published by Merrell.
It is beautifully written by Barbara Baker, and is packed with stunning photographs by Marcus Harpur & Jerry Harpur.
The book is a superb source and reference for all those interested in the heritage of English gardens, gardening, plants and garden design. One hundred gardens are included with photographs, and each one is accompanied with a detailed description of how it was created together with details of the main features.
A number of the gardens featured are members of the National Gardens Scheme, and they are open to the public to raise money for charity.Our garden is the smallest garden in the scheme, as it measures 20 feet by 18 feet, and it is also the smallest garden that is featured in the book.
In the preface and introduction, the writer starts by quoting a poem written by Vita Sackville - West in 1946, and concludes with our quote that we have included on our garden website:
'We feel that gardens, irrespective of their size, have the capability of raising the spirits and feeding the imagination and soul'.
Further details about our award - winning garden can be found on our website: www.victorianhousegarden.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk

We highly recommend this stunning book.
