I recently Blogged about my experience in the garden so today I am going to give you a little bit of information about the garden itself.

The garden surrounding the Royal Pavilion has been restored to its original Regency splendour closely following John Nash’s plans of the 1820’s.  As the architect of the Royal Pavilion, he conceived the building and grounds as a unity, an effect which has inevitably been compromised by the passage of time.  The restoration has returned the garden as far as possible to its appearance in the 1820s with serpentine paths weaving through the lawns and shrub-beds in imitation of forest scenery.  Naturalness is further emphasised by unedged lawns sweeping under the shrubs; unlike modern lawns the grass is kept longer in keeping with Regency gardening customs.*

    Secateurs James? That’s a job for a tonne of agent orange. It’s the only way to be sure.

    Nice shots, CP. Suddenly I have the urge to order a bhindi bhaji with poppadoms and kufti mango.
