The visionary garden designer and his late wife have spent the last forty years developing their four-acre field into the largest private formal gardens in England to exist since 1945. Together they have spectacularly planned and planted beautiful garden features, such as a rose garden, an orchard, fountains, topiaries, knot gardens and prairie style borders.

Taking place at the Yeo Valley HQ and Organic Garden, tickets cost £60 per person and can be booked through www.thelaskettgardens.co.uk. The day includes an illustrated talk, delicious lunch and a tour of the Organic Garden, where plants will be for sale.
