Event description
Dr David Marsh shares the joys (and problems) of creating his own five-acre garden in France

About this Event

My partner and I have had a house in France for around 25 years, and for the last 10 have lived there for about half the year. We moved house in 2006, buying a rambling ruin with mediaeval foundations, two overgrown fields and a lake.

Since then we have been designing, clearing and planting a garden of about five acres. Almost everything, apart from the hedging and some of the trees, is home grown from seed or cuttings, and this is the story of how it was done…and how our French friends, neighbours and the local press reacted! The garden was opened to the public for the first time in 2015.

This lecture is free and Dr David Marsh is giving his time pro bono. We would welcome donations to the Gardens Trust's campaigning to protect historic parks and gardens. https://bit.ly/DonateGardensTrust
