Revitalizing Sissinghurst
Long celebrated as a jewel in the National Trust crown, Sissinghurst Castle Garden in Kent, England is currently undergoing a vigorous renewal under the direction of its head gardener, Troy Scott Smith. In this talk, Smith will describe how he is restoring and reimagining Vita Sackville-West's original creation—recapturing the romance, experimentation, and exuberance that defined her distinctive vision—while accommodating an ever-growing public.

Troy Scott Smith has been the head gardener at Sissinghurst since 2013. Previously, he was head gardener at Bodnant Gardens in Wales for seven years.
