Broadway’s gardens have been the backdrop for artists, writers, actors and musicians for over a century, and continue this theme today.
On this walking tour of three private gardens with Marion Mako, we shall hear about some of the stories behind those who created, inhabited and visited them, all looking their finest in June.
The famous gardens to be visited include:
  • Springfield House
  • Court Farm
  • Russell House (Where John Singer Sargent painted Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose.)
Marion Mako is a freelance garden historian and designer who has worked in both the UK and USA
