Just outside Tetbury on Sunday 2nd October our good friend Leigh is hosting an afternoon talk with Troy Scott Smith. The session will be followed by a Q&A - an amazing opportunity to ask the highly acclaimed gardener your burning questions!
I will be joining Leigh and Troy with a fine selection of my Cretan Terracotta Pots - available to purchase just in time for planting up those Spring bulbs!

Overview: Reimagining Vita Sackville-West's Sissinghurst: A Garden Rediscovered
Join us in the Nordic Teepee at Wild Carrot to hear about Troy Scott Smith's lifetime of gardening and what has pulled him back to Sissinghurst Castle Garden over the last three decades, twice as Head Gardener. He'll describe the work the Sissinghurst gardening team at this most celebrated English garden are doing to take the garden back to a period that Troy believes was the garden at its peak. “Sissinghurst is unlike any other garden I know. From my very first encounter, 34 years ago, it took my breath away and still today when I walk through the wooden gates and under the entrance arch, the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end." says Troy.
