features. Buried since 1940 and re-discovered in 2000.

A Pulham garden near Chepstow and the one I would most like to visit.

Has anyone been to this one?

Unfortunately I'm only a recent gardener. I wouldn't know if a cabbage was planted upside down or not. Rolling Eyes


The people who made the garden a hundred or a hundred and fifty years ago made reconstituted stone from concrete that is supposedly indistinguishable from real stone. Nobody today can work out how it was done. I'd love to know how they did it.

I don't know if you have seen this http://www.pulham.org.uk/ is a site about the Pulham legacy. James Pulham & Sons were the Victorian landscaping firm that built the gardens.

I'm travelling over to England in a couple of weeks and I'm definitely going to call into these gardens on the way through Wales.

Must learn a bit of Welsh, I suppose. Boré da, Cariad!

If I get a chance to take some pics, I'll post them up here.
