Historic Gardens Foundation and Review

This is a very worthwhile organisation - as well as being a fascinating read for lovers of historic gardens and landscapes.

The Historic Gardens Foundation works to bring lovers of historic gardens together through its interactive worldwide network.
It campaigns for the protection and conservation of historic parks and gardens everywhere in the world, famous and lesser-known, big and small, formal and picturesque.
The HGF is a not-for-profit organisation, which receives no public funding, and so is completely independent.

Historic Gardens Review is the HGF’s magazine. Stimulating and beautifully produced, it contains an intelligent mix of articles on all aspects of our international garden heritage. The Review aims to raise the profile of parks and gardens everywhere. Iconic gardens, such as Villandry, Wisley and La Mortola, are featured alongside public parks, botanic gardens and more private creations. Written for and by historic garden enthusiasts from all round the world, the Review is a great way to connect with like-minded people.
