The Laskett Gardens, set in
the idyllic countryside of Herefordshire on the Welsh borders, are the creation of Sir Roy Strong CH and his late wife Julia Trevelyan Oman. The gardens were begun in 1974 and
continue to evolve.
The ex-director of the National Portrait Gallery and Victoria & Albert Museum, now pursues a freelance career as writer, consultant and broadcaster and continues an active role in overseeing the gardens.
"As in the Renaissance garden, a tour around Sir Roy's garden is planned as a voyage of the mind; it's also a celebration of his and his wife's life"...
In 2015, Sir Roy Strong CH bequeathed the garden to Perennial with a generous endowment to ensure its maintenance for years to come. The charity will continue to open the garden to visitors for periods of the year.
