Livestream: The Tulip Garden photo

Specialist flower grower and tulip expert Polly Nicholson has been cultivating historic species of tulips for more than 15 years, earning her the status of the holder of the National Collection of Tulipa (historic). On the occasion of the release of Phaidon’s The Tulip Garden, join her for an exploration of the rich cultural history of this beloved bloom, often depicted in artworks throughout the centuries, and how she has nurtured what has grown into the largest private collection of historic varieties in the United Kingdom.

This talk will be held on Zoom and all ticketholders will receive a link to view the morning of the event. It will also be recorded for those not able to join live.
