Description

The British love their gardens, for they brim with the kind of soothing and lively tranquility that transforms the world into a much more magical place. This interactive virtual presentation is designed to introduce you to some of the most spectacular gardens in Britain, starting from London and spanning the whole of England to its north, including the Coltswods and the Welsh borders: a tempting taster of what you may expect in case of a future in-person visit, which is a prospect you're bound to find irresistible!

Some of the gardens this presentation will talk about include Sissinghurst, Wakehurst Place, Kew, Hestercombe, Levens and Alnwick. You will learn about what to expect on a visit to these places, and when to visit in order to make the best of what these gardens have to offer. You will also be primed about a wide variety of plants and shrubs that thrive in Britain, as well as about the various flowers that comprise the seasonal bloom. Finally, your guide will also make you privy to some helpful tips and information straight from her own garden.

Sally Jacobs

I have considerable experience in leading gardening groups and clubs around the gardens of England. Throughout my career, I have received many letters of thanks from gardeners around the world, and am sometimes asked to develop new tours.

I am qualified as a tourist guide, but garden history and development have always been my first love.  I enjoy meeting visitors and sharing my enthusiasm and hobby.
