Abstract

Nicholas Blundell's diary, covering the period 1702-27, records not only the plants grown in his kitchen and pleasure gardens, but also the cycle of maintenance throughout the year. Based on the annotated transcription by Frank Tyrer, which was edited by J. J. Bagley and published in 1968-70 by the Record Society of Lancashire & Cheshire, a database of entries relating to the gardens at Crosby Hall, Lancashire, has been compiled, giving an unusually detailed insight into horticultural practice in rural Lancashire in the early eighteenth century.
