The Wild Garden
A rebuke to the rigidly patterned bright flower beds of formal Victorian garden design, William Robinson's 1870 revolutionary manifesto, The Wild Garden, championed herbaceous borders, untidy edges, and naturalistic drifts of hardy perennial plants, permanently changing garden history. Examine the design principles advocated by Robinson, assess his relevance, and understand his influence in modern gardens, including Piet Oudolf's High Line and Tom Stuart-Smith's Broughton Grange.
