One of the most influential English gardens of the twentieth century, Hidcote Manor Garden was the first garden taken on by the British National Trust, which spent millions of pounds on its restoration. The work included researching the original vision of the garden’s enigmatic creator, the American Lawrence Johnston. Glyn Jones, current head gardener at Hidcote, has made it a personal mission to discover as much as possible about Johnston to reveal how he set about creating a garden that has inspired designers all over the world.

The PHS McLean Library will be open until 5:45 this evening. The lecture will be followed by a wine and cheese reception.
