Join Emma House, Curator at the Garden Museum, as she delves into the world of Vita Sackville-West's Garden at Sissinghurst and other tales from the ongoing ‘Garden Bohemia: Bloomsbury Women Outdoors’ exhibition here at Sissinghurst Castle Garden. Gardening Bohemia: Bloomsbury Women Outdoors at the Garden Museum (15 May - 29 Sep 2024) centres on four extraordinary women and the green spaces they surrounded themselves with: writer Virginia Woolf and her garden at Monk’s House; her sister artist Vanessa Bell, whose garden and studio was at nearby Charleston; arts patron and photographer Lady Ottoline Morrell, who presided over Garsington Manor; and garden designer and writer Vita Sackville-West and the gardens at Sissinghurst Castle.

Income generated through the event supports both the National Trust and the Garden Museum.

This event is part of The Sissinghurst Series for 2024, a series of horticultural experts speaking on topical issues in the gardening world today.
