About the Author:

Tim Smit was born in 1954 in Scheveningen, Holland, and educated in the UK.

In 1987 he and his family moved to Cornwall where, with John Nelson, he was to discover Heligan.


Only the most stony-hearted could resist the power of such an obsession―New Statesman

This is the book for all those people, gardeners and non-gardeners alike, who have visited Heligan and come away inspired and deeply moved by what they have seen. It is every bit as riveting as the garden itself―Country Life
