Arabella Lennox-Boyd is indisputably the international doyenne of garden designers, recently described by House & Garden magazine as ‘a world-renowned horticultural tour-de-force.’ Through a career spanning half a century she has created magical gardens all over the world with a clientele that includes royalty, aristocrats and pop stars.
In 2021 she drew the strands of her career into a sumptuous book, Gardens in my Life, giving us the title of our 2022 Annual Lecture. Illustrated with photographs as well as garden designs and sketches, Arabella’s talk will lead her audience through a wonderful array of gardens, including her own at Gresgarth Hall in Lancashire. It will also demonstrate the design skills and, in particular the plantsmanship, for which Arabella is so deservedly admired. It promises to be an inspirational evening and an opportunity to celebrate one of gardens and landscape’s most distinguished figures.
