A Celebration of English Gardens:From the Archives of Country Life Magazine

Wednesday October 27
at 2pm EST Zoom Webinar
"The English are a nation of gardeners as well as weather-watchers is well known; the two national obsessions are as intertwined as the honey-suckle and the hedgerow," writes Country Life Garden Editor Kathryn Bradley-Hole. 

Bradley-Hole's Royal Oak lecture, is drawn from her new book, which celebrates English gardens featured in Country Life. The weekly journal launched in 1897, the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee.

From picturesque cottage gardens to grand formal gardens; from kitchen gardens to water gardens; and from medieval monastery gardens to cutting-edge 21st century gardens, Bradley-Hole will take a fresh look at horticultural treasures from across England from Capability Brown, to Gertrude Jekyll, Rosemary Verey, Piet Oudolf and Arne Maynard among others.
