AN EVENING WITH MONTY DON

PERTH WRITERS FESTIVAL

ART:CITY | WESFARMERS

One of the UK's leading horticulturalists, Monty Don is a popular broadcaster and the author of 11 books exploring gardening and the natural world. Having spent 12 years as gardening correspondent for The Observer, he is an enlightened and passionate advocate at the forefront of the environmental and organic gardening debate.

Monty's latest project involved traversing the globe in search of intriguing and fascinating gardens for the BBC's Around the World in 80 Gardens. From the floating gardens of the Amazon to the alpine flower meadows of Norway, minimalist architectural gardens in Mexico to Monet's renowned Giverny, Monty visited all corners of the planet. Constantly surprised at the unexpected locations where gardens thrive, he approached each garden with the same questions: Why do people garden? Is the definition of a garden universal? And what makes each garden special?

Join Monty for a vivid account of his travels as he gets under the skin of different cultures through the greenery they cultivate.
