The glorious No.1 bestseller

Until the First World War, the estate gardens at Heligan were one of the glories of Cornwall. Thereafter, through growing neglect, they slipped gradually to sleep. This is the amazing story of their rediscovery and restoration, or the Victorian vision and ingenuity which first created that subtropical paradise, and of the modern obsession and improvisation which recreated it.

About the Author:

Tim Smit was born in 1954 in Scheveningen, Holland, and educated in the UK. After graduating from Durham University he worked as a county archaeologist before spending ten years as a record producer and composer, successful in Europe, the USA and Japan.
In 1987 he and his family moved to Cornwall where, with John Nelson, he was to discover Heligan.

Review:

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
