705. The Royal gardens of England remained for many years in a state of comparative neglect; but since the accession of Her present Majesty, the royal kitchen-gardens at Kensington and Kew have been given up, and those at Windsor and Frogmore have been greatly improved and augmented. In the gardens at Frogmore a magnificent range of forcing-houses has been erected. The slopes from the terrace at Windsor Castle have been laid out as pleasure-grounds, and the terrace garden has been very greatly improved.
