It must be said, there’s something wonderfully English about the garden as a concept. In its current form it represents perhaps that most middle-class of things, a neat, tidy and orderly yet beautiful to look at space that you won and maintain. For others, it might be a working patch of land, where they grow fruit and veg to put on the dinner plate. There are sheds, greenhouses, flowerbeds and topiary which all seem to exude an undeniable English sense of eccentricity – taking the world outside your window, taming it and turning it into an area you can quite happily sit in whilst you sip a cup of tea.
We are pretty confident that, no matter where you might take the Englishman (and woman of course), they would try to create a garden. When England had interests in India great houses were built to replicate the class of those back home, with accompanying gardens that must have been a nightmare to maintain. In the classic English period novel – think Jane Austen – the characters are perennially strolling through their gardens.
Send someone English to the moon, and before you know it they would have managed to coax life from the seemingly unfertile dust of its land. Gardening is what we do, and should be something we are proud of. NB
