I am a professional garden historian… and a mother. I have been inspired to create this site by the enthusiasm of my own children for visiting historic parks and gardens.

The pergola, West DeanI am independent and have no affiliation to any organisation. Here you might find posts about large, well-known gardens, in the care of the National Trust for example, alongside more obscure, hidden gems. The sort of places where you put your money in an honesty box. The qualification for a post is simply to be a place I have visited with my children, that we have all enjoyed and that I am inspired to write about and recommend.

  1. Hi there, I was hoping you wouldn’t mind me using some of your Out of Nature (Almeley) images for The Cart Shed’s Facebook page, please. We are starting to promote this year’s exhibition and I came across your lovely blog post 🙂
    Please let me know. veronika (at) thecartshed (dot) co (dot) uk
