George London (d.1714) was probably one of the most important figures in the history of gardens and gardening in reigns of William & Mary and Queen Anne. He ran the famous Brompton Park Nursery from 1681 and he and his business partner Henry Wise designed many great gardens together. However, surprisingly, the foundation of the nursery and the way it was run has not been investigated in great detail and some elements of London’s career, such as his early employment by Henry Compton, Bishop of London, his knowledge of plants and plant collecting and his visits to Holland and France to view plant collections and to bring back plants are rarely discussed.

Dr Sally Jeffery will discuss recent research on London and his career that has revealed many new details.

The talks starts at 6.30pm, doors open from 6.15pm.
