The Sleeping Garden: The Story of Heligan
The Sleeping Garden tells the story of the famous cornish garden at Helligan.
Beautifully illustrated throughout the book takes you through the creation of one the great Victorian gardens. At the outbreak of war in 1914 many of the young gardeners enlisted to go to the trenches. Many never returned and the impact on the garden and it’s eventual rediscovery is told with beauty and great sympathy.
Truly a story to treasure.
