Secrets from a Walled Garden

Create botanically-inspired products at my new Autumn Workshop

Fulham Palace is wonderful horticultural haven in West London, the historical home to the Bishops of London and with a rich botanical history.

The site has been the home to a long line of Bishops dating back to 700 AD.   From late-16th century the gardens were renowned for their botanical diversity, the first Tamarisk tree was planted and cultivated here by Bishop Grindal (1559-1570). However, the gardens gained world significance due to the horticultural zeal of Bishop Compton (1675-1713) who imported many rare species and was responsible for the first Magnolia in Europe to be grown here at the Palace.

On Saturday, 24th November, I will be running a morning workshop (10am -1pm) creating beautiful botanical products both culinary and cosmetic; drawing on the history of  the walled garden and its original plants as inspiration.

Booking details will be available soon, in the meantime check out the link to Fulham Palace to get a peek at the lovely grounds and cafe, which you can explore after the workshop!
