Its all C's and D's to me.

Loking for help/advice/competition entrants to create a yesteryear garden/orchard covering 4 acres of land in the Dordogne. All input and feedback appreciated. http://www.manoirdegurson.co.uk/#!blogger-feed/c1y40 I admit to little gardening knowledge but I do love a good garden and believe in conservation. Thanks

    Can I suggest you contact

    The Lost Gardens of Heligan, that have lots of varieties that are victorian.

    Also Garden Organic at Ryton Gardens in Coventry , who have a heritage seed collection.

    You might be able to still get from Amazon

     The Victorian Kitchen Garden. by Jennifer Davies and 

    The Victorian flower garden.

     Also the DVD of the BBC series the books are based on,

     Harry Dodson's Practical Kitchen Garden.  Harry Dodson was the gardener who did most of the presenting and work.

  • Thanks for that Fidgetbones. Plenty to get my teeth into. I am more convinced than ever it is a worthwhile project and am excited at the prospect.
