Relationship between Edward Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll

Our next speaker is the garden historian James Bolton, who will be speaking about the relationship between Edward Lutyens and Gertrude Jekyll, surely one of the most successful garden design partnerships of all time. Together they created some truly iconic gardens in the English Style, including Folly Farm, Sulhamstead, which some of us had the pleasure of visiting last year.

James trained originally with the Direction des Parcs et Gardens in Paris, followed by a year at the Inchbald School of Design, before becoming Head Gardener at The Old Rectory, Farnborough. He established his garden design business in 1992 and has designed gardens across southern England from Suffolk to Devon, as well as gardens in Portugal and the US. He lectures on garden history to The Arts Society and leads horticultural adventures in the UK and across the world.
