Welcome to my website.  I’m a gardener and a historian and for the last 20 years or so I have been researching and talking about gardens and the history of gardens and gardening, both at university level and to local gardening groups and horticultural societies.  I also lecture on the history of London.

These pages are to give you some idea of who I am & what I do and to answer the most obvious questions, but I’m always happy to talk things through and make sure that you get the sort of talk that will interest your members whatever level of knowledge or expertise they might have. 

Just use the menu at the top of the page and then click on the links…
