A Garden to Rival Kew — 3 Comments

  1. How very interesting about the Michaelmas daisies. I wonder if it was entirely coincidental that Michaelmas daisies were grown in profusion at Belmont House, with new ones being developed there, including Little Dorrit and Bristol Blue.

    • Interesting; the owner of Belmont House in the Tyntesfield Estate was a close cousin of Vicary at Aldenham, so they could well have exchanged a passion for Michaelmas daisies!

  2. How absolutely tragic to lose such an amazing garden and what an asset it would have been now. However, as you say, many descendants have inherited or acquired a deep and abiding passion for plants, animals, and other creatures of the more-than-human world, so perhaps all is not lost! Thanks for this!
