Date: 
Saturday, 29 April 2017 - 11:30am

See in the spring with this fascinating talk by Glyn Jones, Head of Gardens for Shakepseare Birthplace Trust. 

Since retiring as Head Gardener of Hidcote, Glyn has taken on the exciting job of steering the five gardens of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust forward. His talk will give a unique insight into this journey. 

Glyn has been working in horticulture professionally for 40 years, having been through a traditional style apprenticeship scheme, then finishing his Horticultural education at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh.

Throughout his career, Glyn has been Gardener in Charge at Tintinhull House in Somerset working alongside Penelope Hobhouse the Garden designer and writer. The next challenge was Peckover House in Cambridgeshire, working as Head Gardener and Property Manager. In 1999 Glyn took over the reins at Hidcote Manor Garden in Gloucestershire, one of the National Trusts flagship gardens. Glyn spent 17 years there, restoring missing features, improving the standards of Horticulture, and establishing environmental standards. He also initiated volunteering opportunities and establishing a garden apprenticeship scheme.

Glyn joined the Shakespeare Birthplace trust as Head of Gardens in February 2016.

Also joining Glyn is Fibrex Nurseries - famous for their hardy ferns, hellebores, ivies and The National Pelagroniums Collection.

We will have splendid spring offers on pots, handmade British gifts in The Octagon and a delightful menu for all to tuck into at the Straw Kitchen.
