On Thursday 11th March 2021, the Surrey Group of Plant Heritage are holding a Talk by Zoom or physical meeting in Cobham (to be advised).

Cherrill Sands – ‘The Remarkable Miss Jekyll’

Gertrude Jekyll is known primarily today as a garden designer and plantswoman, though she was also a talented artist and photographer. As a key figure in the Arts & Crafts Movement, Miss Jekyll also created designs for embroidery, jewellery, ceramics and wallpaper. This talk explores her designs, planting plans, some surviving gardens and her working partnership with Edwin Lutyens.

Full details nearer the time, depending on whether we are able to meet in Cobham or conduct this event via Zoom.
