Julie Dickerson and I were in Hazlet to give a presentation on British Victorian Gardens. An era of gardening characterized by remarkable invention and one many describe as the ‘golden age of gardening ‘Our armchair tour saw the group visit Biddulph Grange in the Midlands and Heligan Gardens in Cornwall. These are two of my favorite British gardens – quintessentially British and Victorian in their ingenuity, gracefulness, elaborate plantings, and immaculate maintenance. The Brits have a great sense of fun and are unafraid to let it show in their gardens. Both Biddulph and Heligan’s quirky surprises makes visiting these garden pure delight!
