Description

The Cape Horticultural Society will host an illustrated talk, “ANTONY HOUSE – BEHEADINGS AND DEAD HEADING” by Rosalind Spiers on Monday, 4 February at 8pm, at The Athenaeum.
Antony House in Cornwall is the home of the National Collection of Hemerocallis. For 600 years the estate belonged to the Carew family. Today it belongs to the National Trust but the family still live there. The grounds run down to the River Lynher and were landscaped by Humphrey Repton. Rosalind will take us around the gardens and house and explain the family history referred to in the title.
