CANCELLED - ANDREW CANNELL - American Garden meets English Landscape
Cossham Hall, Thornbury
Andrew, who spent his childhood roaming the Isle of Man countryside, graduated as top trainee from RHS (Royal Horticultural Society) Wisley, going on to work for the RHS for a further two years.
He then joined the National Trust at Woolbeding Gardens in West Sussex, renowned for its colour-themed planting schemes and romantic landscape, as senior gardener. In 2015, excited by its ambitious plans, Andrew became head gardener at the American Museum in Bath - the only museum outside the USA devoted to American history and decorative art - leading a team of three dedicated gardeners.
In September 2018 the museum opened the £2 million New American Garden and changed its name to the American Museum and Gardens. Andrew co-ordinated the planting of more than 15,000 perennials, grasses and shrubs, many of which are native to the United States. His talk outlines the challenges of installing such an ambitious landscape in a relatively short period of time.
