The gold-fingered gardener who unearths a piece of treasure every time she tends her vegetable patch.



Many a veteran gardener will tell you they're 'green-fingered'.

For relative novice Jan Long, however, 'gold-fingered' is a more apt description - as nearly every time she weeds her borders or tends her vegetable patch, she unearths an antique.

She has dug up an incredible treasure trove of dozens of valuable items including a diamond ring, a solid gold Victorian watch and an Edwardian chain-mail bag at her historic farmhouse.

The mother of three has also found more than a hundred coins - some of them Roman, and an Austrian Crown from 1780 - as well as brooches and medals in her 150ft long garden. Among the more bizarre are a plough, a gate and a wheelbarrow.
