The Garden Museum

We spent most of the day of boiling heat at the Garden Museum, listening to speakers talk about urban gardens:  Allan Jenkins about the pleasures of going to his allotment in the early hours of the morning;  Luke Dixon about putting beehives into Princess Margaret’s garden at Kensington Palace;  Iain Sinclair on finding a mulberry tree planted by John Evelyn;  and Will Ashon on Epping Forest.

The Museum itself was a nice, cool mix of plants and tombs:-

    Christopher Woodward has done a remarkable job as Director of the Garden Museum – no surprise after his high success at the Holborne in Bath. The Garden Museum is a joy, and he has done exceptionally well with Artists in Residence, like Charlotte Verity.
