Rosemary Verey: her contribution & legacy to C20th gardening

Talk by Margie Hoffnung

We are delighted to welcome Margie Hoffnung as this month's speaker. Margie will speak about the well-known plantswoman, Rosemary Verey, whose many achievements included the design of her own garden at Barnsley House, near Cirencester.

After working at Westonbirt Arboretum, Margie undertook a horticultural degree at Writtle College which included a placement with Rosemary, with whom she continued to work for over a decade until Rosemary’s death;  she also spent some years at Highgrove as both gardener and garden guide for HRH The Prince of Wales.  Margie subsequently completed a Masters  in the Conservation of Historic Gardens & Cultural Landscapes at Bath and since 2013 has worked for the Garden History Society (now the Gardens Trust) as their Conservation Officer.
