Meet Bridget and Henrietta and hear more about their story directly from the Land Gardeners themselves.

The Land Gardeners will talk you through their latest book “ The Land Gardeners Cut Flowers”, offering ideas on how to incorporate cut flowers into your garden for all seasons in the year ahead. They will talk through their favourite varieties of roses, peonies, dahlias and more, providing useful tips about how to grow them and how to improve your soil.

Discover their belief (which mirrors ours here at Petersham) on growing organically and on soil health - which is central to all of their work.

When The Land Gardeners arrived at Wardington Manor, the cutting gardens had lain dormant for over thirty years. The Arts and Crafts gardens meandering around the Jacobean manor house had once provided cut flowers for London Society.

Bridget Elworthy and Henrietta Courtauld revived the cutting gardens, growing and gathering glorious blooms for London florists and homes and bringing the manor and gardens alive with their floral circus. Their buckets of blowsy dahlias and silky peonies, long trails of roses and metre-tall tulips evoke an almost other-worldly era of glamour.

We fell in love with the Land Gardeners book as soon as we saw it. We are sure that it will inspire you to create your own cutting garden or to incorporate flowers for arrangements into your existing borders or allotments. Ticket price includes refreshments on arrival, and a signed copy of the Land Gardeners book.
