William Robinson, Gravetye Manor and Bory Latour-Marliac – a story of water lilies, prunes and wine

Wednesday 6th March 2019

Monet and waterlilies are inextricably linked but when it comes to water gardening, Bory Latour-Marliac and William Robinson are far more important. The former engineered daring water lily couplings with consummate skill whilst forging a delightful professional and personal friendship with the latter not least in breeding the Nymphaea
Robinsoniana. Caroline Holmes will navigate the launching of kaleidoscopic colour across Gravetye’s lakes matched by the men’s enthusiastic letters, presents and gossip from the 1880’s to WWI.

Gathering at 12.00 noon for the talk, followed by lunch at 2.00pm in our wood panelled dining room

£85.00 per person, aperitif, 3 courses, drinks and talk inclusive.
