This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at Hall Place and Gardens

Organised by the Garden Museum, this exhibition celebrates the designers and nuturers of Britain's green spaces.

Exploring the stories of jobbing gardeners of the 20th century – including distinguished names Gertrude Jekyll and Alan Titchmarsh – the 700 object display features an array of personal items such as journals, letters, photographs and trophies.

Together they offer insight into the evolution of the modern garden, from changing ideas about design to the plants that have fallen in and out of fashion and the tools that have been used in practice.
