Jon Evans on Robin & Sue White's garden at Blackthorn
A wonderful talk tonight by Jon Evans to the Mid Kent Alpine Garden Society Group on Robin and Sue White's garden at Blackthorn (Part 2). Not only superbly and sympathetically photographed but putting across the extraordinary skill that Robin and Sue have in growing an unparalleled range of plants, and the way they have introduced so many choice species and cultivars to plants-people around the country. A tour de force, impossible to come away from without new ideas and inspiration.
Just a small part of their garden for the alpine enthusiast. Robin is a nurseryman and gardener par excellence.
One day a book should be written on their garden - there is so much to learn from it about using alpines and woodland plants in the garden, whether popular and well known or the the rarest of the rare, all grown with consummate skill.
