The Cornwall Garden Society’s (CGS) December lectures will be delivered by Alan Power who has managed some of the most beautiful National Trust gardens and estates in the country – notably Mount Stewart in Northern Ireland, Hidcote Manor in Gloucestershire and Stourhead in Wiltshire. Mount Stewart is the 19th century house and garden that was formerly the Irish seat of the Marquesses of Londonderry. Hidcote Manor's Arts and Crafts garden was created by the American horticulturist, Major Lawrence Johnston. When Stourhead first opened in the 1740s, it was described as a living work of art with its magnificent lake reflecting classical temples, mystical grottoes and rare and exotic trees. As a result of his impressive career at these distinctive locations, Alan has collaborated with the Gardeners’ World team; presented on BBC Radio 4; co-presented British Gardens in Time on BBC4, and lectured across Europe and North America.
