Paradise Lost and Restored - 400 years of Garden Design in Oxfordshire.

Cost: $25 for visitors. 2025 Memberships available $135 (8 lectures). Pay at the door on the day.

Over 400 years, successive Horti Praefecti (head gardeners) changed the features of the Oxford Botanic Garden, reflecting the art of gardening, and occasionally the science of botany. How is this displayed in garden design at the beginning of the 21st century?

From 1988 to 2014 Timothy Walker was the Director of the University of Oxford Botanic Garden.  Botanic gardens are often described as living museums, and garden curators talk about them in the same way as museum curators do. Gardens are often thought of a place where science and art meet on equal terms and Timothy’s lectures investigate this relationship.  Since 2014, he has taught Plant Biology at Somerville College Oxford.
