The Walled Nursery, Hawkhurst

I have been lucky enough to get permission to photograph the ongoing restoration work that is happening at The Walled Nursey in Hawkhurst. The young couple that have taken on this horticultural nursery have embarked on an exciting and commendable project to restore the 4 commercial sized Victorian greenhouses, the vinery, the orangery and the cold frames. My camera and I hope to be regular visitors, helping Emma and Monty and their team to document this

  1. What a huge undertaking! Congratulations to them, and to you for having the privilege to record all the happenings in images. Wonderful. It looks like it will be a labour of love as it is so run down and neglected.
