Gardens of Southern France Pt 1: Dr Twigs Way

"Favoured by both climate and culture the gardens of southern France delight both the senses and the intellect: encompassing Renaissance to modern, architectural to floral, and formal to fantasy we will explore the delights of Le jardin à la Française! The course will run over two days (12th October and 9th November) and students can attend one or other or both."
