Quote of the Month

There can be no other occupation like gardening in which, if you were to creep up behind someone at their work, you would find them smiling.

BBC TV Programme on Hidcote

There is a very good programme on 
"Hidcote: A Garden For all Seasons"
BBC4 at 8.00 - 9.00 pm on Tuesday 25th and again at 1.50 am on Wednesday 26th.  
This might be of interest to our members as it charts the history of one of the most famous gardens in the world and the first garden to be taken on by the National Trust in 1948.  
Currently, it has over 200,000 visitors per year from all parts of the world.  
Not only is the planting of interest but the story of the garden's creator is interesting too.
