Author: Janet Muter

The author tells the story of her garden from its origin in late Victorian times under the hand of Norfolk-born Dr Michael Beverley, a pioneer in preventive medicine who purchased seventy-six acres of farmland in Brundall where he designed and built a series of ponds and rockeries from which water flowed down to a lake. Around these he planted shrubs and trees (many of them surviving today as specimen trees towering above the lake and garden) where a substantial house was built. In 1919, and now under the ownership of Frederick Cooper, a disastrous fire destroyed the original house and the impressive Redclyffe House was built. In 1924 Brundall Gardens railway station was opened nearby and in 1969 fire destroyed Redclyffe House. In the 1980s new houses were built overlooking the garden and it was at this time that Janet Muter arrived to begin the garden’s restoration. Now, regularly open to the public, the impressive gardens are a tribute to the ceaseless work of its owner. Over 60 000 people have visited, raising tens of thousands of pounds for charity. This lavishly illustrated book, recounting the author’s fascinating story and packed full of wonderful photographs, will delight all gardeners and lovers of gardens – great and small.
