Garden History

The original western half of the Botanic Garden’s 40 acres was laid out in a classic Victorian gardenesque style in 1840s – 1850s and continued to benefit from the discoveries of the Edwardian era, the focus for our 2012 Garden History talks.

Sorry, please note that all the Garden History courses are now fully booked.
