Reviews

This is the book for all those people, gardeners and non-gardeners alike, who have visited Heligan and come away inspired and deeply moved by what they have seen. It is every bit as riveting as the garden itself--Country Life Only the most stony-hearted could resist the power of such an obsession--New Statesman
