Men with Watering Cans!

What is it about Edwardian  Gardeners and their watering cans? In Country Houses and Municipal Parks across the land, teams of men looked after magnificent gardens. In the large glass houses, plants and fruits were nurtured. The First World War saw many gardeners enlist and many never returned. Some country house gardens became derelict as a result. Perhaps these men went to war, too?
