Probably our most 'famous' talk given at the Royal Botanic Gardens in both Melbourne and Sydney. This presentation discusses the French tradition of ornamental vegetable gardening or 'le potager' where vegetables, herbs, fruit and flowers are all grown gloriously together. We look at the history as well as present day examples of both Romantic and Formal Potagers, including the King's vegetable garden at Versailles and Chateau Villandry in the Loire Valley.
Le Potager - Encore!
The second talk in this series crosses the channel to look at English Walled Kitchen Gardens which reached their best during the Industrial Revolution. Vegetable gardening as industry yet can't there be beauty in industry - almost an Industrial Perfection? This presentation includes the gardens at Kew and Stourhead as well as featuring the 'Lost Gardens of Heligan' in Cornwall.
