Barnsdale Gardens – Elizabethan Vegetable Garden

360° VR panorama of the Elizabethan Vegetable Garden in Barnsdale Gardens, Rutland, UK. The plants in the Elizabethan Vegetable Garden are planted close together to maximise the available soil usage. Flowers are also grown alongside the vegetables, making the garden look less strictly utilitarian. All the gardening can be done from the pathways, removing the need for standing or kneeling on the soil when tending the plants.

From Wikipedia:

Barnsdale Gardens in Rutland, England were made famous by Geoff Hamilton through the BBC television series Gardeners’ World which he presented from 1979 until his death in 1996. They are situated on The Avenue in the parish of Exton, a short distance north of Rutland Water.

Geoff Hamilton began developing the garden in 1983 from what was then a ploughed field. It now covers 8 acres (3.2 ha), comprising 37 individual gardens and features.
