On Thursday 12th November 2020, the Surrey Group of Plant Heritage are holding a Talk via Zoom.

 Timothy Walker –  ‘Paradise Lost & Restored : 400 years of Garden design in Oxfordshire’

 Timothy Walker, Lecturer, botanist, gardener, presenter, author  and ex Horti Praefectus and Director of Oxford Botanic Garden.  The history of English garden design can be told in different ways, but rarely can it be told “through the lens” of one garden.  The Oxford Botanic Garden was founded at the beginning of the 17th century and its design bears all the hallmarks of 17th century design.  This talk looks at how the art of gardening has changed, or perhaps has not, in four centuries in Oxfordshire and how the Oxford Botanic Garden now reflects garden design at the beginning of the 21st century.

This is a zoom talk, the fee to attend this online event is £4 for non-members.  Free for Plant Heritage members.

This talk starts at 7.30pm and finishes at 8.45pm.
