Renowned author and broadcaster Catherine Horwood will talk about her experiences when researching and writing about gardening history, one of her favourite subjects. In particular she will give us an insight into her latest work, BETH CHATTO A Life with plants, which was published in September 2019. The biography includes extracts from Beth’s notebooks and diaries bringing her own distinctive and much-loved voice into the book.  

‘…a triumph, beautifully crafted by an author who has thoroughly researched and understood her subject… There is so much here to keep the reader gripped.’ Fergus Garrett, Gardens Illustrated, October 2019

Copies will be available for purchase after the talk, signed by the author, so if you weren’t lucky enough to receive this book for Christmas make sure that you don’t miss out on Saturday!
