Ambler Campus: Lecture - Jenny Rose Carey — “The English Garden”
Start Date: 1/27/2013Start Time: 2:30 PM
End Date: 1/27/2013

Event Description:
In preparation for the “Brilliant!” Great Britain theme of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Philadelphia International Flower Show in early March, Jenny Rose Carey, Director of the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University will take visitors on an English Garden trip without leaving the Ambler Learning Center. Using colorful, evocative images that she has taken during many garden visits, Carey — a native of England who grew up in a family of gardeners and botanists — will entertain and enlighten the audience about the various types and styles of gardens found today in the England of today and yesterday. The lecture begins with the earliest known English gardens developed during the Roman occupation of England, then to Medieval Monastic and pleasure gardens. Garden styles and fashions change with the times and this is illustrated by the transition from the formal, geometric and knot gardens of the Tudors and Stuarts that were swept away and destroyed in the 18th Century to make way for the English Landscape Garden. During the Victorian Era, exotic annual plants massed in ribbon or carpet beds became very popular. Following a loss of labor after World War I, gardens began to change again to what we would recognize as a 20th Century garden. The lecture concludes with some of the typical features and plants that are associated with the style that is today considered “English.”
