Happy 174th Birthday to Gertrude Jekyll

Today is the 174th birthday of Gertrude Jekyll, one of Britain’s best known and best loved figures in British garden history. As Jekyll in the ancestor of the REEP Director’s husband, Richard McLaren, she has a special place in the hearts of REEP who dedicated this year’s international ‘Growing Gardeners’ conference to her.

In honour of Gertrude Jekyll’s birthday, here is a poster we produced about her for the ‘Growing Gardeners’ conference.
