A magical story of a garden lost in time,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Lost Gardens Of Heligan (Hardcover)
This book is an wonderful story of how the gardens at Heligan were found buried after several decades and their restoration.
Tim Smit takes you through the feelings they had when they discovered it bit by bit sometimes coming across hidden parts of the garden even falling into one down what was the waterfall in the old rockery.
Gradually after hours of breakbreaking work the garden is uncovered and restored into a wondrous place.
Once you have read this book you will be inspired into visiting Heligan to see for yourself what it is like and I can say you will not be disappointed.
