Munstead Wood

Munstead Wood is a name I've seen on many plant cultivars.  We spent a few hours looking for Gertrude Jekyll's house and garden.  This would be her personal garden that she cultivated while professionally producing garden designs like Hestercombe.  We're pretty sure her house was in or apart of the buildings in either photo.  It's hard to say, the land had been subdivided during the wars.   We asked those few people we say, one being a gardener, and they didn't even recognize the name.  I found that odd.  The English are crazy about gardening.   Don't they know their garden history?
