About the event
We are pleased to welcome our speaker Todd Longstaffe-Gowan, landscape architect, garden historian and author. Todd Longstaffe-Gowan will reveal some obscure and eccentric English garden-makers who created immensely personal and idiosyncratic gardens between the 17th and 20th centuries. Among the themes he will explore are the building of miniature mountains, the shaping and moving of topiaries, the collecting and displaying of birds and animals, the excavation of caves, the assemblage of architectural fragments and an Edwardian rebuilding of the Garden of Eden.
