Putney Society Meeting - Fulham Palace Garden - its history and restoration. 7:30 pm Monday 23rd June, Community Church, Werter Road, SW15 1LL

Event Date: Jun 23, 2019

Lucy Hart, Haed Gardener at Fulham Palace since 2011, has overseen the renewal of the Walled Garden and the Vinery will talk about history of the garden including the current restoration work.

Fulham Palace Garden is the second oldest botanical garden in London, coming to prominence in the mid-16th century under the careful cultivation of Bishop Grindal.   He sent grapes every year to Queen Elizabeth I and introdeuced England's first tamarisk tree.  There will be a chance to learn more about avid plant collector Bishop Henry Compton, the arrival of the first magnolia in Britain and the fate of the garden after part of the collection was dispersed.
