“The Land Gardeners Cut Flowers” Book Party & Signing with Henrietta Courtauld and Bridget Elworthy May 11th, (7pm – 9pm)

Visit with the Land Gardeners, Henrietta Courtauld and Bridget Elworthy and learn how to grow and gather glorious blooms from their book, The Land Gardeners Cut Flowers!

When The Land Gardeners arrived at Wardington Manor, the cutting gardens had lain dormant for over thirty years.

The Land Gardeners Cut Flowers is the story of how these gardeners revived the cutting gardens, growing and gathering glorious blooms for London florists and homes 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.

This is their story, including their beliefs on growing organically and on soil health – which is central to all of their work. It is a book to inspire others to create their own cutting gardens, with an introduction to The Land Gardeners’ favorite flowers and expert knowledge on how to grow and what to gather by season.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HENRIETTA COURTAULD and  BRIDGET ELWORTHY established The Land Gardeners to research about plant and soil health through growing, cutting and designing.

The mission of The Land Gardeners is to work with gardeners and farmers to improve the health of our land – creating beautiful, healthy plants, gardens and farms brimming with biodiversity and life – all founded on healthy soil. @thelandgardeners
