Populating the Historic Garden

Twigs Way
Friday 6 June 2014

Of interest to gardeners, garden historians and 'family historians' alike, this session on how to find out more about historic gardens will concentrate on the people behind the gardens. Using census data, wage returns, advertisements, contracts, diaries, and evocative photographs, we will explore the wealth of material available to look at the gardeners who carried out the work in historic gardens. A series of national advertisements will help us build a picture of the life and career of working gardeners in the Victorian and Edwardian period – as well as telling us more about the sort of fruits and flowers they would have grown.
