Troy Scott Smith
Reimagining Vita Sackville-West's Sissinghurst:
A Garden Rediscovered
In our 2022 National Speaking Tour, Troy Scott Smith visited five cities across the country over the course of two weeks, recounting his long tenure at Sissinghurst and his efforts to recapture the distinctive vision of its creators.
One of Britain’s best-known head gardeners, Troy Scott Smith, has devoted his career to the beauty and romance of gardening. Since joining the National Trust of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, in 1990, Troy has led some of the world’s most beautiful gardens, among them the Courts (Wiltshire), Bodnant (Wales), and two stints at Sissinghurst (Kent), where he has led a remarkable transformation and restoration of the Vita Sackville-West gardens.
