 We launched the book at Soane on Wednesday 12th November which was supported by 150 people from the Garden world.  Henri and I at Soane before the launch - way out of our depth and neither at all interested in a cocktail party for 150 - let alone another one 2 days later for 200!! This was not our ideal habitat! But guess what we really enjoyed it and were so honoured and touched that so many people came and actaully brought the book. The talented teacher and plantswoman Rosemary Alexander pulled her car to the door and loaded boxes of books into her boot bound for selling at the Chelsea Physic Garden, Luciano Giulbbilei walked off clutching our book under his arm as did many other wonderful gardeners.... we did it!

 And then we did it again two nights later on November 14 at Broughton Castle. Over 200 people braved the icy cold and packed the Great Hall at Broughton Castle
