During the years when Gilbert White lived at The Wakes (1730-1793) the garden grew in size from a small plot next to the High Street to a much larger estate. He was inspired by the English Landscape Movement and the writing of Philip Miller to create a landscape garden in Selborne. Historic features of the garden that can still be seen include the original Haha, Sundial and Fruit Wall as well as the Great Oak planted in 1730. Much of the garden has been recreated using the notes Gilbert White kept in his ?Garden Kalendar?.
