Product Description

The gardens of Heligan in Cornwall were a thriving paradise until the First World War killed most of the gardening staff and the grounds fell into decay. The 1990s saw archaeologist Tim Smith set about restoring them to their former glory, his efforts described by The Times as 'the garden restoration of the century'. This video, based on the Channel Four series, charts the development of the garden over a 12 month cycle.

This video is a fascinating insight into how the Lost Gardens of Heligan were found and restored. You meet the people who are responsible and you are shown how different parts of the gardens were restored together with footage of the garden before restoration was started - and what a difference they made! You don't need to have visted Heligan to be able to appreciate this, you just need to have a love for either archaeology or plants, or both! After seeing the video you will certainly want to visit, and also buy the next video, 'The Return To The Lost Gardens Of Heligan'. -- Dan Parsons

Format: VHS Tape
This VHS tape is long overdue release on DVD, and in doing so, preferably it will be a box set of the TV series rather then a 90 minute overview as is this. It's a fabulous story about the passion of two men in restoring the overgrown gardens, trees, ponds and streams to something resembling their former magnificent glory; and they succeeded admirably. The Eden Project has seen DVD release with Alan Titchmarsh narrating. 'Open All Hours' milklady and Robbie Coltrane's wife in 'Cracker,' Barbara Flynn, narrates here and makes a superb job of talking us through the amazing job these chaps took on and succeded in turning a jungle into the most visited garden in the UK.

Love this - from start to finish a pleasure as the story of the garden unfolds. Little wonder that the Eden Project grew from this beginning.
