THE HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF THE GARDEN HOUSE “One of the finest gardens in Britain” By Sue Allen

Talk  |  Seated

SUE ALLEN: On retirement from the National Trust, I have volunteered at The Garden House for 18 years. I am an ambassador for the charity and a Board member of the Fortescue Garden Trust.

TALK: The Garden House has its origins in the passion of Lionel Fortescue and his wife, Katharine, who bought the overgrown grounds of the 19th century vicarage at Buckland Monachorum in 1945. Since that time only three other highly visionary and innovative Head Gardeners have placed their mark on the wonderful garden so admired today. Now owned and managed by the Fortescue Garden Trust, it ably delivers its charity objectives of demonstrating horticulture innovation and excellence, education and training and - offers pure delight for all who visit the attraction. The talk relates the milestones of a garden approaching its 80th anniversary next year.
