Devon’s Garden Trust celebrates 25th anniversary at Castle Hill.
CASTLE Hill played host to Devon’s Garden Trusts (DGT) 25th anniversary this month.
The celebrations, hosted by the trust’s patron the Countess of Arran, included a talk by Sue Minter on the life and travels of Alicia Amherst.
Mrs Amherst was one of the first people to write about garden history and London parks and gardens.
Dr Clare Greener, chairman of the DGT’s conservation committee, said of the talk: “A well-illustrated and fascinating account of a very interesting woman, still little known to current garden historians.”
