About the Speaker

Michael Brown has been interested in history and gardening for as long as he can remember. He became a qualified gardener and worked his way up to become Head Gardener at the Menagerie at Horton and later Cosgrove Hall. Later he researched medieval gardens and the uses of the plants, which was very useful when he created the medieval gardens at the Prebendal Manor at Nassington, Northamptonshire. Michael studied for his MA in Garden History at Birkbeck, London whilst he was a full-time college lecturer in Horticulture.
