To celebrate the generous gift of a large collection of works by Cedric Morris, we are delighted to welcome Sarah Cook who will be giving a lecture on Sir Cedric Morris and his irises. Sir Cedric Morris was a leading British iris breeder in the mid 20th century. Not only are his irises stunning garden plants, but their names uncover a fascinating record of his friends, pets and other interests.
Sarah Cook, Chelsea Flower Show exhibitor and past Head Gardener at Sissinghurst Castle, was born and bred in Hadleigh and has spent the last 10 years researching Sir Cedric Morris and collecting his iries.
Hear her fascinating stories on discovering lost irises, the tales behind the names of these beautiful flowers and just why she is so smitten with them.
