Look around the gardens of southeast England and you will find the influence of William Robinson (1838-1935). At Munstead Wood, Sissinghurst and Gravetye (to name but a small few), naturalistic planting, drifts of plants, cottage and woodland garden plantings have found their place – because of this man. Robinson’s influential ideas about wild gardening led to the popularisation of the ‘English cottage garden’, transforming the gardens of the rich to look like those of the working classes. Together we will investigate his gardens and their influence.
