The Personal and the Impersonal: written clues in garden history
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.
