About this Event

This course will highlight some of the great names in twentieth century gardening: Percy Thrower, John Brookes, Rosemary Verey, Percy Cane and Beth Chatto. Their achievements will be brought to life in fascinating detail by some of our very best garden historians and presenters.

If the course is "sold out" please don't despair but join the waiting list and if there is sufficient additional demand we will consider taking out a zoom licence for a larger audience.

This ticket is for the entire course of 5 sessions or you may purchase a ticket for individual sessions via the links above and below.

Attendees will be sent a Zoom link prior to the start of each session, and the session will be recorded and made available for one week to ticket holders.

Sept 1st: Percy Thrower by Advolly Richmond

Between the years 1950 and 1975 Percy Thrower (1913 – 1988) was possibly one of the most recognised people in the country. He was more than just the ‘Nation’s Head Gardener’ and an early gardening celebrity. He was a lecturer, an author, a businessman, a garden designer and above all a passionate horticulturalist and nurseryman. This talk traces the achievements of a remarkable and talented man.
