Chicago Botanic Garden
1000 Lake Cook Rd., Glencoe, Illinois 60022
Learn about the philosophy and history of this famous English site, designed by Vita Sackville-West and her husband, Harold Nicholson, in the late 1930s. Discover how Vita's overflowing flower beds and Harold's formal garden structure of Classical and Moorish influence are maintained and enhanced in the twenty-first century.

Alexis Datta, who has spent 22 years tending to the Sissinghurst Castle Garden, will give a virtual tour of each of the distinctively themed «rooms» of the property, and tell how she achieved such spectacular results while maintaining great affection for the garden's creators during her tenure at Sissinghurst.
