Meeting Reminder – Saturday 10th February – ‘Hestercombe: The Restoration of the Edwardian and Victorian Garden’

Saturday 10th February – 11.00am

Claire Greenslade – ‘Hestercombe: The Restoration of the Edwardian and Victorian Garden’

Claire is the Head Gardener at Hestercombe, which combines the landscape garden originally created in 1750 by Coplestone Warre Bampfylde with the early 20th century formal gardens designed by Edwin Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll.  Claire will be talking about the challenges of restoring a heritage garden, including the difficulties in maintaining colour in a garden that was originally only designed for summer, as well as tracking down the original plants outlined in Jekyll’s design.

Some of you may have spotted Claire with Monty in his Paradise Gardens series recently.
