Initially inaccessible and swamped by overgrowth when the Lost Gardens were rediscovered in 1990, much of Heligan's valuable woody plantstock was subsequently identified and protected during the course of clearance by Philip McMillan Browse, then Cornwall County Council Horticultural Advisor (and former Director of RHS Wisley). Philip later became Heligan's first Horticultural Director, and encouraged his team to research into the origins of the veteran specimens in their care. Some individuals are rare indeed - and vulnerable in their old age. Some have grown to extraordinary height during their battle for light during the era of dereliction. Others represent possibly the very earliest introductions to Britain. All have stories to tell, and contribute to the unique character and atmosphere of the Gardens. We want to ensure everyone can fully appreciate and enjoy them now, before their inevitable demise.

Space Of A Garden Space Of Culture

Author : Grzegorz Gazda
ISBN : 9781527561212

File Size : 53.8 MB

The book presents the phenomenon of the garden and its various cultural features. It compares historical aspects of the garden with its contemporary models and focuses on various cultural traditions and different ways of presentation of this problem, in the context of world literature, problems of visual arts, questions of architecture, ecology, universal aspects of language, as well as philosophical problems of axiology and aesthetics. All those contexts combine to form a picture of a phenomenon that could be called “the metaphor of the garden”, containing a universal anthropological image of “space” in which dynamic re-evaluation of rhetorical models take place and the order of Nature complements cultural models of human understanding of reality.

This is the fourth volume in Timothy Mowl's ground-breaking county series on historic English gardens, now sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust. Cornwall is particularly strong on nineteenth- and twentieth-century gardens, in which the mild climate allows many exotic species to flourish. The 'Lost' Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project have made the county a particular favourite among garden-lovers. As in Dr Mowl's previous volumes there is nothing bland about either his selection of important gardens or his comments about them, which are as incisive as they are informed
