Samuel Barker

Posted on July 1st, 2005 by Sian Jones

Philip Jones (author of Great Nottinghamshire Gardens, 2001) is researching the life and career of Samuel Barker, who was head gardener at Clumber House, Nottinghamshire, from 1899 to 1935. He would particularly like to hear from anyone who can supply him with details about Samuel’s earlier appointments at the Vineries, Littleover; Robert Owen’s Nurseries, Marden; Philip Ladd’s Nurseries, Swanley; the Horticultural College, Swanley; Winslade Gardens, Exeter; Blenheim, Woodstock; and Lord Burton’s Gardens, Rangemore.
