About this Event:

One of our leading contemporary writers on gardens provides an overview of the English garden scene illustrated by the work of the renowned garden photographer Andrew Lawson. Richardson looks at 25 gardens that represent a rich vein of innovation and creativity witnessed in England over the last 10-15 years. They range from the Prince of Wales’s Highgrove Garden, through Trentham Gardens, to Dan Pearson’s Gardener’s Cottage and Christopher Bradley-Hole’s modernist garden at Crockmore House.

Richardson is a garden historian and critic of contemporary landscape architecture. His works include English Gardens in the Twentieth Century, Arcadian Friends: Inventing the English Landscape Garden, and Great Gardens of America. He is a regular columnist for the Daily Telegraph gardening pages and also writes on theatre, food and art. He was gardens editor at Country Life and edited New Eden, the contemporary gardens magazine.
