Book: The Lost Gardens of Heligan by Tim Smit

Fascinating tale of the restoration of a Cornish estate's fabulous gardens that had been decaying for the better part fo a century.

They had a bigger budget than most, and help from the BBC and the National Trust, but we can all sympathize.

If you go to the site below you will be able to have a virtual tour of the gardens, an introduction by Tim Smit, and so on. This was a 10 year restoration. Look for the 'Mud Maiden'. . .
