Garden History’s 50th Anniversary edition

Welcome to the online anniversary edition of the Garden History journal

The Garden Trust’s Garden History journal was first published by the Garden History Society in 1972 and quickly became a highly respected source of original research for the emerging garden history discipline. Since then, its reputation has grown and it has become not only the ‘go to’ journal for established garden history academics but also the journal where emerging students and knowledgeable amateurs can share their peer reviewed research.

This special anniversary journal revisits 13 papers from each decade of the past 50 years, updating them with new perspectives from today. This underpins the Gardens Trust’s commitment to ensure the study and research of garden history continues to evolve and grow and remains relevant both now and in the future.
