If there be a Paradise
On the face of the earth,
It is here, it is here, it is here.”
Khusrau, 13th century Persian poet, on a garden
 
13th January 2020 – The Newt in Somerset opens a new attraction. The Story of Gardening is an immersive exploration of gardens and their impact on culture, from courtyards of the ancient world to the hanging gardens of today’s megacities.
Leaving their shoes at the door for sensory immersion, visitors are transported to gardens around the globe and throughout history, exploring the human impulse to create beauty from the ground at our feet. Meet the colourful characters who shaped the art of gardening. Discover how trends and techniques evolved. Every garden, large or small, reflects an ideal of paradise from the culture in which it is created; it is somebody’s dream.
