Item description for Rooted in History: Managing Gardens in the 21st Century by Mike Calnan...
In May 2001, the National Trust held a major conference on garden conservation and restoration as part of its celebration of gardens over the year. Many of those providing papers for the conference have contributed to the book, which is the Trust's guide for those involved in the conservation of gardens, whether private individuals or professional. Case studies include current flagship projects such as Hidcote Manor, where a major restoration is taking place to bring to the fore the plantsmanship of its creator, Lawrence Johnston; Dyrham Park, where archaeological excavation has revealed the early 18th century plantings; Tatton Park, where a major recreation of great Victorian kitchen garden has just begun; and the Knightshayes Court, where the holding unit is providing not only plant propagation, but the latest developments in environmental gardening.
