TV gardening presenter, plant expert and modern day plant hunter, Tom Hart Dyke first shot to international prominence in 2000 when he and his travelling companion, Paul Winder, were kidnapped in the Colombian jungle on a plant hunting expedition that went dangerously wrong.
From these dangerous beginnings, Tom planned a garden which would contain plants from around the globe. With the help of two large pigs (with hilarious consequences!), Tom created The World Garden at his home at Lullingstone Castle in Kent.
Join Tom for this fascinating and enthralling talk and presentation about his ordeal in the Colombian jungle, how he planned his dream garden and how The World Garden is taking shape today. Tom will also sign copies of his books; The Cloud Garden and An Englishman’s Home on the evening.
