Literary English Garden Tour 2014
Imagine strolling through Jane Austen's garden with the head gardener ..... visiting the greatest flower show on earth - the Chelsea Flower Show (photo left) ...... and visiting Gilbert White's house, The Wakes. Gilbert White is widely considered to be the world's first ecologist, and was the author of The Natural History and Antiquities of Selborne, published in 1789.
You'll experience all this and more by joining tour leader Carol Chernega for a 2014 tour of her favorite literary gardens. Carol's the author of A Dream House: Exploring the Literary Homes of England. Visiting the homes and gardens of these classic English writers with Carol will give you added insight into their writing. Serious gardeners will enjoy seeing exemplary representations of English garden style.
