Episode 129: wild gardening in an old-growth forest
The woodland at Milner Gardens and Woodland is a beautiful example of one of the last remaining old-growth forests in British Columbia, Canada. The former owners preserved many old trees on the estate. Follow Ivonne while she’s strolling through the woodland garden.
The forest trail leads us across boardwalks which protect the forest floor. And over paths which are covered with wood chips. Now and then we come across an information sign about life and death in the forest.
Ivonne discovers that the lady of the house, a keen gardener, was influenced by William Robinson. This Irish gardener and journalist is known for his wild gardening style, including woodland gardens and natural-looking planting. That’s where his ideas meet those of us at Discutafel!
