The garden at Gravetye Manor was first established in 1885 by the revolutionary gardener and writer William Robinson. Central to his creation is a 1.5-acre elliptic walled garden, which was perfectly designed to produce fruit and vegetables for the estate. After a period of neglect, this beautiful garden was restored in 2010 and is now managed to provide the Manor’s Michelin star restaurant with ingredients. In this talk, head gardener Tom Coward will discuss the history of this fascinating garden and explain the work involved in growing for one of the finest restaurants in the UK.
