Gardener’s Cabinet: Robin Lane Fox In Conversation with Tim Richardson

Part of a season of conversations curated and convened by Tim Richardson, garden historian and landscape critic.

Legendary garden writer Robin Lane Fox is joining Tim for this special Gardener’s Cabinet Salon. The UK’s longest-running gardening columnist having written his weekly feature in the Financial Times for nearly fifty years, Robin is also a renowned classicist, ancient historian, author, and an Emeritus Fellow of New College, Oxford.

The Gardener’s Cabinet has been conceived by Tim, to learn the secrets of what makes great gardeners tick. Robin will pick eight items – from a favourite book and piece of music to his favourite garden – and tell us how they have inspired his work. A light-hearted glimpse into the working mind of an opinionated and knowledgeable gardening expert awaits.
