Our newsletter GT news (formerly GHS news) is published three times a year; in spring, mid-summer and late autumn.

It contains a mixture of news, details of our (and other people’s) events, members’ research and other views, and less formal articles.

It has 40 pages and is printed in full colour, using soya based ink, recycled, carbon balanced paper and biodegradable mailing film.

GT news is mailed to members but a selection of older and current issues are (freely) available below. There isn’t always space in our paper publication for full reports of all our events. As most of these include opportunities for study, as well as the sheer enjoyment of the gardens and other designed landscapes, we plan to publish the full version online, below the relevant issue of GT News.


Out shortly, our summer 2019 edition is dominated by our recent tribute to Christopher Thacker at the Garden Museum. He was the first editor of our journal, Garden History, the summer edition of which goes out with this mailing. Our recent event at Bramham Park seems to have tied in well with the themes brought up by our exploration of Christopher’s life and work in garden history.
