A Legendary Gardener

At the Bridgehampton Community House

The Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons will present “Rosemary Verey: The Life and Lessons of a Legendary Gardener,” an illustrated talk by Barbara Paul Robinson, on Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Bridgehampton Community House.

Verey, who died in 2001, was an internationally known English garden designer, lecturer, and prolific garden writer who created the famous garden at Barnsley House, her home in England’s Cotswalds. The Prince of Wales, Elton John, and the New York Botanical Garden were among her clients.

A former president of the New York City Bar Association, Ms. Robinson took a sabbatical from her New York law firm to work as a gardener for Verey and subsequently for Penelope Hobhouse at the National Trust Garden. “Rosemary Verey: The Life and Lessons of a Legendary Gardener,” published in 2012, is the only biography of the English gardener.

Admission to the lecture is $10, free for members of the alliance. Refreshments will be served.
