ANCIENT ROOTS: CLASSICAL STORIES GROWING IN YOUR GARDEN
AboutCelebrate our gardens as we dig deep into Ancient Greece and Rome. Stories of gods, goddesses, demi-gods and mortals still fill our garden borders and orchards with vibrant and dramatic life. Even kitchen gardens and our garden aesthetics contain epic seeds propagated by Ancient Rome. We travel back 2,000 years to find the seeds of fabulous stories of our gardens today.
