SGT Christmas 2021 Event

Sissinghurst: The Dream Garden

Wednesday 8th December 2-5pm  The White Hart Hotel Lewes


We are thrilled that the renowned garden historian, Tim Richardson, will be giving a talk about one of Britain’s most unforgettable gardens: Sissinghurst, the home of Vita Sackville West and Harold Nicholson. Tim’s new book, Sissinghurst, The Dream Garden, tells the story of this romantic garden, from its beginning when Vita had been exiled from her family home at Knole, until it passed to the National Trust. His talk will explore how Vita’s informal approach to gardening was then briefly abandoned in favour of a more controlled style, and Tim will consider the fine line between the public and the private in the garden at Sissinghurst.
