Lockdown Gardens

Throughout the past year of lockdowns, gardens have become central to more and more people’s lives. As our pace of life slowed down and our worlds became smaller, our relationships with nature have provided a source for mindfulness and inspiration, and outdoor spaces a place for creative expression.

In this online panel talk, garden writer Alice Vincent is joined by Head of Horticulture at the Horniman Museum Errol Reuben Fernandes, artist Francis Hamel, who has spent lockdown painting the gardens at Rousham House, and artist gardener Rufus Biddle; as they shed light on the way lockdown has altered their own relationships with the garden and their thoughts on the nation’s renewed joy in nature.
