Heidi  Howcroft - Tea and Roses


Entertaining, informative, and whimsical: An impassioned life in England’s garden paradise

“We should put more trust in fate. It felt like the end of the world for me when I left Munich in the late 1990s, but in fact a new chapter of my life was about to begin: in England’s garden paradise. Exchanging the city for the country, my renovated apartment for a high-maintenance cottage from the seventeenth century, a balcony for a wildly overgrown garden, and my high heels for rubber boots, I stumbled upon rather than sought out the country idyll.

Shaped by novels and television films, my preconceived ideas of country life, of rose-clad houses and villages where everyone knows each another and tea is served at every chance, turned out to be true. Whether through instinct or luck, I was able to live the dream in a small village in South Somerset. I was able to look behind the scenes, participate in unique events, and engage in discussions that aired the secrets of the world of English gardens. These are the subject of this book.“ Heidi Howcroft
