    We have lost the title after 400 years to North Yorkshire.

    The proud title of Garden of England has slipped from the grasp of Kent after more than 400 years, according to a survey which condemns the county as overrun with railways, traffic jams and chavs.

    Disgusted l am.

    I've always assumed that the term "garden" referred to the type of things grown here rather than anything, in the sense of market gardening I suppose. The fact that the fields near us are actually the campus of an agricultural and horticultural college and Kent also has the key research centre for fruit trees suggests that a northern county could not genuinely take the title from us until global warming has scorched us into desert and Yorkshire has a climate that regularly supports two crops a year. We were told by a Yorkshire farmer that there is a distinct latitude north of which farmers must raise livestock rather than grow crops because of this factor. Of course Kent is fast becoming a better wine growing region than France because of this climate change and now produces the best wine-that-we-aren't-actually-allowed-to-call-champagne-but-is in the world according to champagne-and-other-wines-like-it-that-aren't-allowed-to-be-called-that competitions. That means that Kent is still remarkably versatile in what it can produce and it is this variety that earns it the title "garden of England", not the acreage. Even with livestock it still has the land that can support the most sheep per acre, so pure acreage isn't a relevant criterion anyway.
