Date: Tuesday 13 December 2022

Tuesday 13th December 2022 at 6pm GMT – ‘English Garden Eccentrics’ by Todd Longstaffe-Gowan – Landscape Architect. This is an entertaining look at obscure and eccentric English garden-makers who created some immensely personal and idiosyncratic gardens between the early 17th and early 20th centuries. Themes include the building of miniature mountains and risings, the shaping and moving of topiaries, the collecting and display of birds and animals, the excavation of caves and other burrowings, the assemblage of architectural fragments, and an Edwardian rebuilding of the Garden of Eden.

Todd Longstaffe-Gowan is a landscape architect with an international practice based in London. He is gardens adviser to Historic Royal Palaces, lecturer at New York University (London), president of the London Gardens Trust, editor of The London Gardener and author of several books including The London Town Garden and The London Square.
