Tulipmania, the history and heritage - Virtual Open Garden - NGS
Our virtual garden visits have been bejewelled with tulips this spring. Gardens from Yorkshire to the south coast have enjoyed the riot and drama of the bulbs that were once worth more than gold. One Garden Owner, Polly Nicholson, runs Bayntun Flowers an artisan flower grower and florists, located at Blackland, a small village hidden at the foot of the Marlborough Downs in West Wiltshire. As well as growing unusual flowers and foliage in a series of Georgian walled gardens she specialises in historic tulips keeping alive the blooms that started the craze for these fabulous flowers over 400 years ago.
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake.
