Description

Walled kitchen gardens were found in the grounds of most large country houses in Britain and Ireland and were designed to provide a continual supply of fruit, flowers and vegetables.

With the aide of heated glasshouses, there would be out-of-season delicacies such as strawberries for Christmas, exotic tropical fruits, figs and grapes.

The remains of these gardens can still be seen, some converted to other uses, some simply abandoned; a few have been restored to their previous productiveness.

This book examines the history of these old kitchen gardens in the light of what might be seen there today.
