    Image of John Greening with garden plan

    Museum consultant and historian Val Bott has been studying the heyday of nursery gardening since 2006. In parishes along the Thames their garden grounds were well located for the river and road transport and they supplied estates and gardens of every size. Members of one family held the majority of royal contracts in the 18th century, in London, Windsor, Hampton Court, and Richmond. Although they were based in Isleworth, the Greening family had royal contracts at both the Kew Garden and the Richmond Garden, both part of the Kew Gardens today.

    Doors open at 7.30pm and the talk starts at 8pm

    We are very pleased to be promoting this event jointly with the Richmond Local History Society.

    Tickets available on the door.

    Free to Kew Society Members and Richmond Local History Society Members.
