Description

 

Rosemary Verey was the last of the great English garden legends. Although she embraced gardening late in life, she quickly achieved international renown. She was the acknowledged apostle of the "English style," on display at her home at Barnsley House, the "must have" adviser to the rich and famous, including Prince Charles and Elton John, and a beloved and wildly popular lecturer in America. Born in the years between the two World Wars, it was a devastating accident that changed her life, and with her architect-husband, she went on to create the gardens at their home that became a mandatory stop on every garden tour in the 1980s and 1990s. 

Author Barbara Paul Robinson spent the last 20 years of Verey’s life as a volunteer; getting to know her personally and professionally. Join the author in discussion of Rosemary Verey: The Life and Lessons of a Legendary Gardener followed by a book signing.
