Andrew Mikolajski - Gardens of Tudor England
Thursday 14th May, 8pm
Memorial Hall, School Lane HP8 4JJ
Gardens of Tudor England
Andrew will share the importance of gardens in Tudor times, as spaces for growing rare plants, to displays of wealth and as backdrops to intrigues of all kinds. Using Robert Dudley’s garden at Kenilworth as an example, we will find out what plants meant to garden makers of the day.
Andrew Mikolajski is a gardening writer with over 20 years’ experience of editing and writing gardening books, lecturing and speaking.
He has a busy career as a gardening author, lecturer and speaker, giving demonstrations to gardening clubs and other groups, and is on the RHS and Cottage Garden Society lists of speakers.
He was an horticultural adviser on the new edition of the RHS A–Z Encyclopedia of Garden Plants and more recently on a revision of the RHS Encylopedia of Plants and Flowers.
He is currently planning a series of workshops and courses for the Masterclasses series at Lamport Hall.
