The Naked Gardener

 

On World Naked Gardening Day it’s worth reflecting on the achievements of the original Naked Gardeners from the UK.

The Abbey House Gardens are in the centre of the historic city of Malmesbury in Wiltshire, right next to Malmesbury Abbey, which forms a stunning backdrop to the garden.

The garden, created by Ian and Barbara Pollard, opened in 1994 and has attracted almost half a million visitors in the last 20 years.

It’s beautiful, without doubt, but, according to the UK Telegraph, the Naked Gardeners came to a crossroads and have ended their marriage and put the property up for sale a few years back.

Whatever troubles in Paradise there may be, the garden is well worth visiting if you can get there.
