Kitchen Garden, Kew Palace

We re-cast this then derelict small walled garden in 2010/11 in collaboration with the Gardens and Estates Team at Historic Royal Palaces. The garden which lies adjacent to the c18th Royal Kitchens is laid out in four quarters criss-crossed with hoggin paths, and the selection and display of fruit, vegetables and herbs has been informed by contemporary English gardening treatises including James Garton’s Practical Gardener (1769), Thomas Mawe and John Abercrombie’s Universal Gardener and Botanist (1778), and A. & W. Driver’s Pomona Britannica (1788).
