Towards the end of the 19th century, gardening magazines lamented the loss of the formal garden with the Victorian fashion for 'carpet-bedding' replaced with a yearning for the past. The gardens of the Arts and Crafts Movement sprung up while the Edwardian gardens of Gertrude Jekyll reflected this new style of garden design. The second part of this talk will focus on some of the great gardens created by Jekyll's contemporary, Harold Peto, including his own garden at Iford Manor in Wiltshire.

About Camilla Anderson

As a Garden Historian, I am passionate about the history of our gardens. With a website listing over 200 gardens, my talks cover a variety of topics. If I’m not hunkered down in the archives or taking photos of a new site, I can be found pottering around in my own garden.
