Summary

Gardens Through Time tells the history of garden design through the story of the Royal Horticultural Society, from its foundation in 1804 to the present day. The history of British gardens has rarely been tranquil. Architects and horticulturalists invariably come to blows over garden design. This debate, as well as the influx of exquisite plant material from all over the world, keeps gardens vibrant and interesting. The society that started life 200 years ago with 7 well-connected men now serves and educates over 280,000 people. Gardening has bloomed into a GBP3.5 billion-a-year industry. Written by presenters, Jane Owen and Diarmuid Gavin, this is the story of the Society, plants, people, ideas and inventions behind the passion. It concludes with a look at the contemporary garden specially designed by Diarmuid for the TV series. Combines carefully researched historical material with commissioned photography.
