An Uneven Account of a Romantic Ruin 28 juillet 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
We all have a fascination with man-made works that lie in ruins. Rose Macauley wrote an entire book on "The Pleasure of Ruins." Think of the ruins of the Acropolis, all that white marble bleaching in the Athenian sun. But then, think of the Acropolis as it was when it was built-- its many statues covered with what we would consider gaudy paint. Which does the modern eye prefer? Somehow, the romance of ruins wins out, and it is the ruin of Heligan that seduces us rather than its restoration. Restoring the lost gardens of Heligan, in Cornwall, has been Tim Smit's enviable job for the past decade. Heligan "fell asleep" after WWI, when much of its gardening workforce was drafted to fight. Smit is at his best when he describes the eerie atmosphere of the overgrown gardens under their canopy of self-seeded trees. Ghosts haunted the gardens, spreading a creepy air, and Smit relates how he had to call in a vicar to exorcise them. Smit's account lags, though, in the many paragraphs devoted to the nitty gritty of dealing with camera crews, staffing the ticket booth and applying for various grants. Unfortunately, Smit's earnest writing would have greatly benefited from collaboration with a professional writer. While this book describes a wondrous project, Smit's writing is often tedious. Personalities don't quite emerge as clearly as certain plants do. Still, I'd recommend this book to any serious gardener. The book is nicely illustrated with many color photographs that evoke the romantic atmosphere of the ruins as well as show the beautifully-restored, productive gardens of today.

Absorbing 10 mai 1999

For anyone even remotely interested in gardens this is the book for you. A totally absorbing chronicle of the restoration of a unique Victorian garden in Cornwall, Great Britain. To think I once lived only 10 miles from it and never knew of its existence makes me want to make a return visit to Cornwall to see this magnificent restoration.

Re Visiting Lost Garden of Heligan by book 24 juillet 2014
Par Roslyn Krause - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
In a trip to Cornwall 2003 we visited the lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project. Both projects developed by Tim Smit. We spent hours at Heligan which was a most enjoyable visit. I wanted to purchase the Heligan beautifully photographed book but unfortunately it was quite large and since we were doing quite a bit of visiting Cornwall and Devon it was much too large to carry around. Just recently I was looking at old pictures and decided I had to find Lost Gardens of Heligan and purchased it from Amazon. Looking at this book brings back many memories of the day we spent there. Before long the book arrived from UK and I will never get tired of
looking and reading the story of Heligan. Thank you Amazon for the excellent order.

I have read 100s of gardening books and this one is totally unique. Social history, plant lore, and amazing gardening techniques (pineapple greenhouses, salted paths and water driven pumps). The very engaging author has written a beautiful biography of a majestic and mysterious place.
