Ham House Garden is part restoration and part re-creation of a c17th landscape, designed with house and garden in harmony, created to impress. This illustrated talk will consider how the garden has evolved to offer the contemporary visitor beauty and relevance while still retaining the original ideas and intentions of its creators.

Rosie Fyles is Head Gardener of Ham House and Garden. Over the last five years Rosie and her team have received numerous accolades for their transformative, creative and nature-friendly gardening appearing widely in broadcast and print media. Rosie is a Trustee of Silent Space, a charity that promotes peaceful time in green spaces.
