Storyteller garden – horticultural heroes by Martin Stott

About

Saturday 15 June 2019 | 10.30am - 11.30am
Bromley House Library
Tickets: £4

Garden history writer and former journalist Martin Stott tells why gardens are repositories of such great stories and introduces his horticultural heroes.

You'll hear about the ingenious campaign to persuade 18th century France to overturn its laws making potatoes illegal, how a visit to a pub turned a Nottinghamshire vicar into Victorian Britain's most famous rose lover and what gardeners owe to Thomas Edison and Henry Ford's bizarre camping holidays together.

Martin has made programmes for Radio 4 and the World Service in 21 countries. More recently he has written for Gardens Illustrated and the Historic Roses Journal.

Located in a 3 story Georgian Town House, please note that the building does not have a lift.

Tickets £4 for Bromley House Library members and £5 for non members. Booking is essential. You can book by email, phone or in person.

Bromley House Library take card payments over the phone or in person.
