Small gardens in the time of Hogarth: a talk by Dr Sally Jeffery

February 22 @ 6:30 pm GMT

A look at gardens in the time of Hogarth by Dr Sally Jefferey, an Architectural and Garden Historian

This talk will consider smaller gardens in London and its environs, with a focus mainly on the time of Hogarth and his contemporaries.

Small gardens, like the one at Hogarth’s House, have been rather neglected by historians, who have tended to explore the stories of grander and larger gardens in town and country. However, modest plots cultivated by less wealthy people are equally interesting.

Some were used solely for growing vegetables and fruit, with just a few flowers for ornament, while others were entirely devoted to pleasure and entertainment, and some happily combined the usefulness of the productive garden with opportunities to enjoy outdoor spaces and gardening activities.
