Gertrude Jekyll: Her Art and Place in Garden History
Friday 14th March, 7.30 for 8pm, The Barn, off Beech Road, Purley on Thames, RG8 8DR
Come early and join us for a glass of wine & some light refreshments
In 1983 Rosamund Wallinger and her husband purchased The Manor House at Upton Grey. She discovered soon after that the much neglected garden had been laid out by Gertrude Jekyll. This was the start of a lifelong devotion to Miss Jekyll and the garden at Upton Grey. Mrs Wallinger has taken infinite care to source plants detailed in Miss Jekyll’s plans and to follow her planting instructions. Today Upton Grey is the most authentic of the extant Jekyll gardens. Mrs Wallinger has a deep theoretical and practical understanding of the work of Gertrude Jekyll, one of the most influential garden designers of all time; this is a talk not to be missed.
Places £10 for BGT members, for non-members £12 per place or £20 for two places.
