We're lucky in the UK with the number of top rated Great British Gardens for us to go around and view and to see the many various types of plants, bushes, flower and trees. Organisations such as The National Trust (NT) Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), English Heritage (EH) have many gardens in all their glory and you can pass many a day viewing these works of arts, and all at a very reasonable cost. These organisations tend to concentrate on the living garden plants, trees etc. and the garden sheds of the world and grand summer houses don't get a look in as it appears they are not important.
One of the most famous is Kew Gardens, in West London, who recently set out to create the biggest bank of fungi specimen the world has ever seen. Plant biologists at the Kew botanical centre believe their collection of fungi, which naturally includes mushrooms, along with toadstools, spores and moulds will eventually become the largest collection in the world after a further 400,00 examples are added to the collection. This is likely to bring the total to 1¼ million. To house this collection a massive size shed store room has been added to their existing range of buildings.
Dr Brian Spooner, biologist at Kew Gardens said that fungi are essential to probably every living thing on the planet as fungi grow in association with plants and trees. Even the trees turned into the storage sheds are home to many types of fungi. He further said that at least 90% of the world wide plants need a fungus at their roots to enable them to grow properly.
Kew Gardens are very well known for their large glass sheds, including the tropical Palm House, marvellous glass house, and this structure is considered to be one of the most important Victorian iron and glass structure in the world. This pioneering structure was the 1st time engineers had used wrought iron to span such a large width without central supports columns. A truly amazing Victorian garden structure.
There are also many other garden workshops and greenhouses located around the gardens where the public can view and learn more about the important work which the RHS is doing. In fact 1 in 8 of all known plants are stored in their collection of sheds, stores and greenhouses.
However, without the British wooden shed the British garden would be a shadow of what it would be. The shed is a very important area for storing the gardening tools, the lawn mowers to keep the lawns in pristine condition, an area to work in and with the potting shed an area to bring on your seedlings in a sheltered environment. I would imagine that these large gardens have quite large shed like structures hidden away from the beauty of the immaculate garden but never the less are crucial for the smooth running of these large garden estates and public gardens.
In the more modest garden the small storage sheds for sale plays a vital role for the keen gardener where gardeners can spend time planning their master piece and contemplating how to put these plans into action. It's possible to have a beautiful garden, even with a modest area, and it's the thought that goes into making the garden balanced and flowing which will give it its character. This is a really fulfilling, enjoyable hobby and is quite an healthy pastime, it's also a relaxing pastime where you can get away from the world.
