  • Lecture - Juliet Sargeant – Modern Slavery Garden

    Juliet’s previous career in medicine informs her unique approach to designing gardens and communicating the importance of landscape to our wellbeing. She believes that access to good quality green space is a priority for healthy living and happy communities, especially in cities.

    In 2016, Juliet designed the Modern Slavery Garden for RHS Chelsea – its first social campaign garden – for which she was awarded a Gold Medal and the People’s Choice Prize.

    Fellowships of The Society of Garden Designers and The Landscape Institute followed in 2017 and 2020.

    Juliet has been celebrated as a role model in the BAME community at the GG2 Leadership Awards and presents on BBC Gardeners’ World and Channel 4’s Village of the Year.

    At her Sussex Garden School, she teaches design and planting to gardening enthusiasts.

  • Self-drive visit to Bonython, Helston and Cross Common Nursery, The Lizard

    At Moyclare, planting began in 1927 by Moira and Louis Reid. Meandering paths lead through woodland shrubberies, herbaceous borders and sunny corners. The pond and lawns are surrounded by camellias, rhododendrons, mature trees, shrubs and many rare treasures from the Southern Hemisphere.

    Penmilder is a 2.5-acre south-facing garden with delightful bluebell woods and an apple orchard, which is particularly pretty with primroses and daffodils in the spring. 

    Sisters, Adrienne and Trish, are developing South Bosent with wildlife in mind. It comprises several themed gardens, woodland plantings, large mixed borders and a four-acre meadow. Other features include a mini-lake, waterfall and rill on the terrace, and several plant collections, all designed to provide year-round interest. Along with thousands of planted bulbs throughout the garden, a bluebell wood runs alongside the stream pathway.

    A booking form for this self-drive visit will be available in March 2021.
