Description
Gravetye Manor, William Robinson’s Wild Garden
William Robinson was one of the most influential and prolific garden writers of his generation. His most notable works were The English Flower Garden and The Wild Garden. These eloquent maverick books laid the foundation for much of the English gardening style today.
From 1885 until his death in 1935 he used his garden at Gravetye to experiment and develop his ideas, leaving the legacy of this beautiful
garden. In this talk, Tom will explain the work involved in conserving such a historic garden while developing it into the 21st century.
