Zoom talk with speaker SIR RODERICK FLOUD – PURCHASING PARADISE
The great gardens created in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries are beautiful, lovingly designed, built and maintained. How much did they cost, who paid for them and where did the money come from? Roderick Floud, author of An Economic History of the English Garden (Penguin) considers how Paradise was purchased and places the gardens, their owners, designers and gardeners within the context of their times.

This online talk starts at 2pm.
Tickets are £4 for Surrey Gardens Trust Members and £6 for non-members.
