Looking good now
The fat fists of silvery lilac buds on Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill' have opened up to release an intense, sugary scent at the mouth of the Winter Garden.

The Personal and the Impersonal: written clues in garden history

Twigs Way
Friday 9 May 2014

Picking through the debris of the past – the throwaway comment in a letter, a nurseryman's invoice, an account book of the 18th century, a detailed record of a garden visit in a travel journal, a postcard, a guidebook. Unexpected snippets from the past which can tell us so much about the personal experience of a garden, and the rather more 'impersonal' details of orders and costs, from plants to glasshouses to garden nails. These sources can be a treasure trove or a lucky dip for the garden historian.
