Yesterday to Tomorrow – gardening in an historic setting On Wednesday 27 September we are thrilled to welcome Michael Le Poer Trench, theatre photographer turned intrepid gardener and guardian of 13 th century Stavordale Priory and its 12 acres of gardens filled with a vast array of plants, alongside lakes, orchards, and a kitchen garden.

Over the last 20 years Michael has developed and added to the garden laid out in the 1970s by the previous owner, renowned garden designer Georgia Langton, making it his own, while remaining true to the historic nature of the place and respecting Langton’s original design. His bravery in experimenting with the gardens he inherited, while adapting it for his personal pleasure has allowed for a series of instinctual quirks and intentional imperfections that attest to the garden’s dreamy beauty.

For this Open Source Salon, Michael allows us the privilege of a rare glimpse of the private gardens of Stavordale Priory and its magic, as he takes us through its vibrant history and explains how he is making a garden with such a rich past become very much relevant to today’s owner. As with every salon – audience questions and participation is welcomed!
