Looked at the sites now...:-)

seen as though Bradford is the nearest 'themed' mughal garden to me, I shall have to visit that one first..:-)

The Bradford Mughal Garden sounds really nice. The fact that they use local materials and plants is really good as it proves that you can take on the asthetics without just trying to copy it outright.

"combining terraces and paths, grassed areas and avenues of trees divided by water channels, cascades and pools in a traditional rectangular design. Plants and trees with a mughal or Indian connection were chosen wherever possible but the overall approach was to use planting that appeals to the senses - particularly sight and smell - and that creates a harmonious and restful atmosphere and hopefully delight the senses with colour and scent and the bonus of the sounds and sights of the glistening fountains."

It sounds pretty magical. But how does it stand up to the British weather...:-)
