Editors Note: Sara created the Victorian Flower Garden website in 2006 after she moved to Nonsuch in Tasmania in early 2005. In 2009 she created the Nonsuch Kitchen Garden website after her focus moved from flower gardens to a more dedicated kitchen garden and sustainable living. 

Welcome to the Victorian Flower Garden.

On this site you will find lists and description of flowers common in the Victorian garden, garden designs of the nineteenth century, descriptions of gardening methods in the Victorian Age, and a section devoted to the restoration of the Victorian garden at Nonsuch. (Editors note: the restoration at Nonsuch is referred to as The Old Diaries on this website)
