Garden History – Time for a Revival?

We were all very enthusiastic about garden history in the 1980s and 1990s, at least in British Isles. Since then there has been a bit of a lull. We look at the reasons why and more generally at why this is an important discipline for the future of our designed landscapes, as well as being jolly interesting in it own right. Our panel includes David Jacques, who helped establish garden history as an academic discipline in the 1980s and 1990s, Advolly Richmond, who covers the subject for BBC Gardeners’ World, and to Deborah Evans, a landscape architect and landscape conservation specialist.
