Dan Pearson and Tom Stuart-Smith headline Garden Museum garden design talks

The Garden Museum in London begins its Spirit of Place series on 15 October, asking garden designers and writers to consider the question: what is spirit of place?

First up will be Dan Pearson, who will use examples from his new book Spirit: Garden Inspiration to illustrate what "spirit of place" means to him.

On 28 October, William Waterfield will talk about Le Clos du Peyronnet in Menton, which was started by his grandfather in 1915 and inspired his brother Giles' classic novel, The Long Afternoon.

Tom Stuart-Smith will talk on "What is a 'dream garden'?" on 11 November.

Ecology professor John Rodwell — with religious education and environment chairman Diana Lazenby and museum director Christopher Woodward — will discuss ideas about landscape and memory on 17 November.

On 25 November, writers Mary Keen and Adam Nicolson will explore "otherworldliness" from a personal viewpoint.
