Gertrude Jekyll’s Lost Garden
July 18, 2020 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 am PDT
Claude Graves presents “Gertrude Jekyll’s Lost Garden”
Gertrude Jekyll was the world’s premier garden designer during the early 1900s. Come along to London on a virtual visit to a restored Jekyll garden and hear the improbable story of the discovery and amazing re-construction of a long-lost historic garden. This feat is even more incredible when you consider it was accomplished single-handedly by one woman who had no previous gardening experience. Her restored garden is now internationally recognized as the most authentic Gertrude Jekyll garden in existence today!
