Paradise and Plenty: The Rothschild Family Garden. 20/10/15
‘Paradise and Plenty’ (Pimpernel Press) opens a window on to Eythrope, the private domain in Buckinghamshire in which Jacob Rothschild has created a garden whose virtuoso horticulture recalls a lost age of splendour. Mary Keen – author of the book and designer of the garden – will tell the story of its atmosphere to Stephen Lacey, Telegraph writer. How does a designer create atmosphere?
But this will also be a celebration of Sue Dickinson, retiring Head Gardener. Sue has been dubbed ‘the most expert gardener in Britain’ and Eythrope as a place of ‘world class horticulture’. Uniquely, Eythrope preserves the techniques for a garden to provides fresh flowers and produce to a house which entertains on a grand scale, twelve months a year. This is a once in a decade opportunity to ask Sue Dickinson the secrets of her skill.
