Gardens Illustrated has resumed publication of podcasts of the Vista lecture series at the Garden Museum in London. This series of thought-provoking talks, accompanied by lively question and answer, is one in a series of lectures presented by Tim Richardson and Noel Kingsbury.
David Cooper, professor of philosophy at the University of Durham and author of A Philosophy of Gardens, talks about whether we need a philosophy of gardens. (Of course he thinks we do.) Many American gardeners probably have no interest in a highfalutin lecture on the philosophy of gardens, but I recommend you give this a listen if you have a serious interest in gardening, either from the perspective of a visitor of gardens or as a gardener.
