Remembering John Brookes MBE
By Elspeth Briscoe •
11th October 1933 – 16th March 2018
We were privileged to work with John Brookes at Learning with Experts, who is generally considered as the ‘the man who made the modern garden’. John is frequently referenced as one of the most influential garden designers of the twentieth century.
John Brookes died on Friday morning at the age of 84, after a lifetime of designing gardens and landscapes in Britain and around the world. Some of his best-known gardens include the College Green Garden at Westminster Abbey, Fitzroy Square, Barakura English Garden in Japan, and the English Walled Garden at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
He tells his story in his own inimitable way, in this unpublished interview.
Rest in peace Mr Brookes. We remember you very fondly; and will miss your giggle
