Brockham Green Horticultural Society will be meeting at 7.30pm in Brockham Village Hall, Brockham Lane, Brockham, Betchworth, Surrey, RH3 7JJ. Members £3, non-members £5.

The twentieth century brought some emancipation for women, acceptance at horticultural colleges, and for some, artistic fulfilment in the garden. Hear about creative women and their gardens, including Gertrude Jekyll at Munstead Wood, Vita Sackville-West at Sissinghurst and Beth Chatto, with her nursery Unusual Plants, amongst others.
