Tom Stuart-Smith at Braxted Park

June 05 2018

Please join us on Tuesday June 5th at 12 noon to hear the celebrated garden designer, Tom Stuart-Smith, talking exclusively at Braxted Park about ‘Gardens and Culture’.

As Tom says: “Making gardens in different parts of the world has made me realise that our approach to gardening in Britain is both unique and eccentric. I will look at gardens I have made in India, Morocco, the Caribbean and the US in contrast to some of the gardens I have made in the UK, so as to illustrate the different place that gardens occupy in different cultures”.

Tickets for the talk are £10 each and must be purchased in advance. The talk is in support of Horatio’s Garden. Entrance to the garden is payable on the day on arrival.

This event is part of the NGS Open Garden Day at Braxted Park. The garden is open on 5th June from 10am to 4pm and admission is £5.50 (children free). Light lunches and afternoon teas are available in the Walled Garden Pavilion. Guide dogs only.

Braxted Park, a Grade II* park of “exceptional significance”, is once again opening its gardens for one day only for the NGS . Meander around the parkland’s ponds, lakes and walled gardens, enjoy the long Wisteria broad walk and admire the Mulberry parasol trees which are unique to Braxted. The Head Gardener will be on hand to answer questions and perennials will be on sale in aid of Horatio’s Garden.
