Especially the English love their gardening. With a climate that is wet and still fairly mild, they can grow a lot in the south and west and they DO. If you are at all interested in parks and gardens, the whole county of Kent south of London is a mecca. London itself hosts the annual Chelsea Flower Show as well as being where the World Heritage Kew Gardens are found. There are also plenty of mansions and palaces such as Hamption Court outside London with its famous maze, and Chatsworth in Derbyshire with impressive park landscapes. Browse any major bookshop and you will find a gardening section, and countryside railway stations all the way up to Pitlochry in Scotland pride themselves on floral decorations.
