1970s shedstuff wanted


If your shed stretches back to the 1970s, then the Museum of Garden History would like to hear from you. As reported at Lila Das Gupta's The Rake's Progress and shedblog, the museum is planning an exhibition of the contents of a typical 1970s shed (to be more precise, in fact very precise, a typical 1978 shed). It is looking for donations from the public to furnish this time capsule which will show how gardening has changed over the decades. The show will open at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in 2008 before ending its tour at the Museum of Garden History.To donate, email: mary@museumgardenhistory.org with a description of the item and a picture if possible. Photo from Colin's Blog taken circa 1970/73 including Boracic acid powder, Wright's Flowers of Sulphur and Potassium Permanganate. Nice.
